Does ersatz-UNIX count?
At one start-up, our servers were SPARC-based but we could only afford
Intel boxes on the desktops. We found that the MKS Toolkit on OS/2
Warp was the closest on the boxes, talking to the servers over X and
such. (EMX stuff was acceptable but it still sat on top of DOS. Warp
was odd in that it came with a full TCP/IP stack.)
