I believe all Sequent machines use Dynix. It's all a question of which version you need.

I suppose some of them will run windows nt too, but why waste a perfectly good computer?

I'd like to see how a Sequent that new will handle, say, 16 or 32 cpus. They may very well be capable of it.

Certainly, and I've never heard that they are unreliable.
