Pointless but fun.
I loaded NetBSD 3.1 on my old MicroVAX to see how it would do.
NetBSD 3.1 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Oct 31 10:04:40 UTC 2006
cpu: turning on floating point chip
total memory = 24320 KB
Running the latest client for NetBSDVAX v2.9008-492-CFR-04062219, I'm
getting a top speed of 6638 keys/sec using the ANSI 1 pipe core.
Looks like 7.5 days per block!
Surprisingly the simh VAX running on an Intel Due core 2.0GHz only
clocks in at 5523 keys/sec.
Not bad for an 18 year old microcomputer.
