A moronic attempt as using this funny qwerty layout thing. It should
read SW (ServerWorks).

They must be the Unisys OEM machines. They are based on some
crossbar-architecture called CMP that allows logical partioning,
etc..

Yup, turns out they are.

I have talked to Unisys engineers on last Cebit who said that the
NT (now W2k) port required a huge amount of work. Also I noticed
that UnixWare^H^H^H^H^HOpenUnix needed work to run on it.

Well, I guess NetBSD is a good candidate, it has a nice portable MM
system, linux might not be so bad either, but without knowledge of how
this works, I am just guessing and probably still talking shit.
