Actually even though late model PC's with Linux aren't "vintage", a case for allowing discussion is around trying to use those "linux' machines to bridge truely vintage "Unix' machines to the rest of the internet world.

A project I plan to attempt is to set my old HP PA7000 based machines back in time ... to the late 1980's, early 1990's; back to the 9x versions of hpux. Then blend a PC or one of the PA7100 based system with linux and a web browser to communicate to the outside world and my other later model PA7100 based systems. Use "Kermit" or some form of uucp to pass files to and from the ancient ones.

No rhyme or reason here , just hobby machines representing that time in my life.
