This is remarkably similar to the DG ad described in "Soul of a New Machine"
which said something like "IBM says its entry into the minicomputer market
will legitimize it. The bastards say 'Welcome.'", which I howled over.
Of course, to this day, the best use I've seen for an IBM mini is the
Series/1 at CMU's ITC that works the badge readers and the Coke machine.
Saying that A/UX legitimized unix would be like saying that our sun ipc board
legitimized msdos.....
