Appreciate the suggestion. I already have a few deskside 88k AViiONs
buried in storage, several Moto MVME 88100/88110 modules and a chassis
or two, an ADP-badged M8120, and one of the OMRON Luna 88k SMP
workstations. That last just popped up on eBay one day so I grabbed it
-- say, wonder if I can dig that out in time for VCF...
As Jerry wrote, the 88k systems in question were probably officially
designated as the 900 series. But I think there must have been some
marketing use of the name based on the packaging. Too bad I couldn't
keep all those issues of SunWorld, OpenSystems and EE News so I could
track it down.
Anyway I always dug the packaging of the Powerstack (or 900 series)
systems, and thought it'd be neat to have one someday.
