Ah! Excellent point. I have to admit, I was totally unfamiliar with
the very early Sun products. I was happy with my little ZX Spectrum
back then, and being about 14, wasn't paying much attention to the
world of academic Unix usage. :-)

Looking up the SUN-1, I see that it lacked a graphics adapter, and was
a text-only machine. I didn't know that. That alone means that it's
not really what I think of when I think of a Sun workstation: no
windowing system means that for me it's not really a workstation.

But as a single-user Unix machine, yes, it unquestionably qualifies,
and I need to redefine my terms and my thinking a little...
