[TUHS] Names of famous, historical UNIX machines?

About a decade ago, I attended a workshop at an Intel location in
Mass.  There were about 50 outside people.  We were in a rather nice
room across from a break room which provided coffee and sodas.

Just as we were about to start, someone showed up and informed us all
that the break room was for the exclusive use of Intel Employees, and
outside visitors were not permitted to use it.  And then they left. 
The Intel hosts rolled their eyes and set up a system whereby we could
ask an Intel employee to get us whatever we wanted from the break
room.  The workshop was pretty good anyway...

 It was Conan O'Brien. You can find it on YouTube.

 It's a huge blind spot for Intel. They tout it as "everyone is equal"
 but they miss that noone who needs peace and quiet to work can work

 Yes, as a fellow Intel employee, I'd have to agree.
