In the EARLY days of the 360, that was true, but in later 
days many people owned their machines.  Washington 
University rented their 360/50, but then bought a used 
360/65, and then added two used 370/145s.  Despite the 
number of 360s made, there are REALLY few left, and I'm not 
sure anybody has any that run.  (Of course, with the SLT 
modules, spares would be a REAL problem.)

Yup, for sentimental reasons, I still have my MicroVAX-II here.
