Look at it this way, the PDP-8's and PDP-11's have an advantage over
a Honeywell system. Even the rarer 8's and 11's probably are easier
to get parts for, and then there is the whole question of software.

Of course what I'd really like is a DPS-8 emulator and a copy of
GCOS-8 to run on it (or a copy of Multics).
