IBM 8361-110, Network Station Series 300, seems interesting.
it's based on PowerPC4xx.

Never tried. Any feedback?

Pictures come from this web (German language).

I am a bit confused about the software. IBM says "included with AIX 4.* with the NetWorkStation module enabled". I say, What? Where? How? :roll:

It's not clear to me :shock:

Interesting pics.

I'm still trying to figure that out with help from my GF as we discussed.
Not sure you got my last PM.

Found an interesting '90 Window Manager: 9wm. It's interesting (for me) because It provides a simple yet comfortable user interface, without garish decorations like title-bars and icons, and it's click-to-type.

9wm is an X11 window manager inspired by the Plan 9 window manager 8½. It provides a very simple and clean user interface. It makes heavy use of the mouse, and no use of the keyboard. It is click-to-type. It uses the X11 font system (which, unfortunately, means no Unicode support).

9wm does not provide virtual desktops, customization, key bindings, or compositing. It does not allocate any colors, and only requires Xlib, both of which will be great news if you are in 1993.
