The figure shows a mix of software and hardware, and maybe there's no real
reason to separate the two, but I think of it as:
        Star ran on the 8010 (codenamed Dandelion)
        Viewpoint ran on the 6085 (codenamed Daybreak)

AFAIK, the Siemens box was an OEM version of the 6085, and the only
difference was the color.
