They run OpenBSD or NetBSD. FreeBSD currently only supports x86, although
I've heard they're adding Alpha support. I assume this is actually a
DECstation 5000, these things were built to run Ultrix. Note, they will
not run VMS.

I could have sworn there was a Linux port, but might be mistaken as I don't
keep up with the non-x86 versions of Linux at the moment.
