Wow! That's a really good idea. I have an 300mhz SGI 02 Irix 6.3
machine with 18G+4G of disk space connected to a T1 on the open
internet. I can set it up to be locally or remotely manageable.
Not sure if it's a mainstream OS, but I am not doing much with
it now and if really need be, you can run MIPS Linux on it.
