I actually worked on an A/UX box at my last job! It is really the only
experience I have ever had with a Mac. It was the only non-Linux box we
had in production, and it was our face to the world. The reason we had it
was that it is totally un-interesting to script-kiddies. Worked well, we
had some customer boxes owned, and some minor breeches on the Linux boxen,
but the A/UX box left all the 1337 d00dz scratching their heads.
One day the owner (Mike Erwin of O'Reilly's "Virtual Private Networks"
fame. This was at Outernet Connection Strategies in Austin.) hooked a
monitor up to it just to show us the MacOS desktop. Pretty slick deal.
But he never paid me the $50 he bet me that I couldn't get bash running on
