    Just to satisfy my curiosity about the comments here on Digital Unix's
    size, I telnet'd into my ISP running Digital Unix.

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root system 9388376 Apr 26 12:10 vmunix.old

    Now that's big!

    Note, that may be a debugging kernel, those can grow from the normal
    (!) 3MB to 6MB or more for most commercial OS's. But then again I
    also just checked my nearby Alpha/AXP box and sure enough the sucker
    is similar in size:

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 8429408 Dec 14 1994 vmunix*

    ;-)
