this is a nice machine... I have a MINT 3000 model 900 myself in my
collection, which is a 275mhz alpha processor. The 600 is a 175mhz processor.
Still a nice machine. You can run it headless with a serial console, just do
not plug a kb in, and plug the terminal into the serial port on the back. This
machine can run OpenVMS , Tru64 or OSF/1 unix, Linux (although with some work)
and Netbsd. This is one of the alpha processors which CANNOT run NT... no
loss there though... wrote:
