We use BSD/I running on 486 machines - initially because it was cheap, but
I've been really impressed with it. It'll run on a 386, on our 486/50s we
can run X with no trouble, as well as an httpd, and seem to get about
SPARC-2 performance. Compared with the same machines under Widows, it's
amazing. Runtime version costs about GBP 400, a CDROM with all the sources
is about GBP1000

Just a satisfied customer.
