The veird machine is the Luxor ABC 1600 computer.
It was a test from them together with a consulting firm to design and
sell a UNIX based system (an version of Sys III if i'm not wrong) using
an MC 68008 but with a A4 portrait monitor.
The weird thing: why did they try to use a crippled processor (but
it gave them cheaper peripherals)
but a fairly expensive graphical subsystem with monitor....
Have and Have nots...
and yes it is Mattis Lind together with his father Rune who run this
