Somebody said that there was already software for the DW to use it as the
keyboard and screen for a running PC.

There were a few other similar machine, but the LB was the most popular.

With a LB, you could not only make a DW capable of running PC software,
you could do the same for a keyboard, a printer, a TV set, a table, a
kitchen sink, . . .
