Both Data General and Honeywell's level 6 were sunk by ill concieved 
projects to generate
chips way too late in the game to make any money at it.  I know the 
Honeywell system
was plug compatable with the level 6, which had boards even larger than 
the Nova.  Gee,
one board with some asics or a 40 or 50 pin chip and a board full of 
asics to get the same
cpu in honeywell's case.

Dec almost but not quite made a go of their chips.
