Well... yes. Recently. I was playing with a magtape of 2.9BSD circa
1987, trying to load it onto my 11/24. Well... I _did_ load it
onto my 11/24. I even dropped $300 on Terry Kennedy for a KT24 so
I could have more RAM. What stopped me in my tracks was a lack
of a decent disk, not that I could have afforded a UDA50 + SDI disk
at the time. The best I was able to do personally was 3 RL02s
on the same machine at the same time (by pooling my entire drive
rack onto one controller). I might have been able to pick up
a Unibus ESDI or SMD controller and a 100MB drive, but when I started
all of this, I didn't even have a hard disk on my Amiga (that was
$500 for 20MB MFM drive+controller, compared with $1,000 for a C-Net
and 20MB SCSI drive, but that's another story).

This was all before Linux, when running Unix at home was "L_at__at_K
R_at_RE!" Now, it's nothing special.
