My 3100/M38 runs OpenVMS 7.2, UCX, DECNET and Motif in 12MB, not fast but better
than my Wintel with NT; I know that the 3100 is a bit better than a KA630.

On my uVax II I'm running VMS 4.7, DECNET and CMUIP in 9 MB RAM. I've always
been impressed about how VMS handles loading with small RAM especially
when you compare it m$ not technology.

Regarding loading and performance handling I was wondering how Xerox D machines
handle load; Tony any feedback?
