Subject: Which small UNIX system would YOU buy?

  Nearly every week, some new 16/32-bit microcomputer announces a
UNIX or UNIX-like operating system for their hardware.  Many of these
are small (1-4) multiuser systems, and generally cost between 9-15K.
This price range is within reach by many departments at small-medium
size universities, which is my primary concern.
  So, for all of you who have small, relatively inexpensive multiuser
UNIX systems, I have 3 questions:

1)  What system do you have, and why did you pick it?

2)  What system would you buy today?

3)  What is the worst system you have seen, and why?

As always, I will compile the responses, and post to the net.
