The DEC Rainbow was a very well engineered machine that incorporated both 8 and 16 bit processors in a multi-boot machine.
Since it was a VT-100 compatible terminal as well as a PC it was often sold as a terminal to bigger DEC equipment that doubled as a stand-alone PC.
This machine and all of the associated documentation and software were kindly donated by Tim Kuechler.
