I went looking for some of this a few months ago, but it seemed like it wasn’t going to be a simple search.  At one time I’d played with CMU Mach, Utah Mach, OSF Mach, and Apple’s MkLinux, but it all seemed to have drifted into broken links and missing FTP servers.

Sprite, Accent, Spring, Amoeba, VSTa … a lot of the OS projects I remember from that era seem to have disappeared.  Only Plan9 seems to have really survived (not counting the Mach bits of Darwin).
