I got it only a few weeks ago. And yes, it is the Siemens labeled 5800 in
the light grey case. I got it from one of the engineers at Xerox PARC who
worked on the Star/Daybreak team. Did Siemens have an exclusive market in
Europe to market these machines, which are otherwise known as the 6085 (or
Daybreak?) in the U.S. and other countries around the world.
