Linux/MIPS does better. I've been working on it for the longest time
with just 8mb of RAM.

The bad news is that Linux still does only compute BogoMIPS on DECstations
as DECstations will need a complete new set of drivers etc for their
hardware.

DECstations were built based on R2000/R3000. There was also a rare
R4000 version.
