IBM RT PC

Personal Notes:
The first commercially available RISC PC. Features the ROMP Processor, a multi-chip design, and as such the predecessor of the POWER architecture, muscle of today's IBM workstations. It runs AIX 2.2.1, a REALLY old derivative. Pain to set up, because does not run natively on the hardware, but on top of VRM (Virtual resource manager) which presents a virtual machine to AIX, a little bit like VMware today. A typically IBM-Overdesigned solution, should add flexibility but was never used to run other OSs on top of it, now just burns CPU cycles to manage the virtual box.
