IIRC the Intel IPSC (Inter Personal Super Computer) put a ton of these in
parallel. It ran some kind of Unix and there has to have been a gcc port.
I believe (I'll have to check) that in the Osborne-McGraw-Hill/Intel
i860 book there's a quote from BillG saying that Microsoft was committed
to developing for the 860 as a personal computer CPU.
I think that never happened...it would have been interesting, however.
