For people curious about virtualisation and observing the crossover
between real world and fake silicon, you can boot the original media and
hard disk images for these machines under Linux using various emulators
including SimH, GXemu (well, DecStation 3100 is less well-supported than
the 5000 series which I know works; need to see, but you can certainly
run Ultrix binaries anyway if that counts :) and QEMU and RPCEmu for the
Archimedes. There's also Arculator for Windows.

Conversely for people wanting to run a real OS on very different
hardware, NetBSD runs on all of them (and depending on the model
maybe the Apollo as well) and Linux runs on the Archimedes.
