At MIT, I use PDP-11s all the time.  I run out of 64K data all the time.
I don't do that out of some sadistic intention to prove that PDP-11s are
inferior in comparison to any given processor, I do that because the work
that I do happens to be that large.  I have seen people doing FORTRAN
benchmarks that take 4Mb of data.  If the 286 is too high and mighty to
act on enough data, I don't particularly care how fast it thinks it is.

You probably have a 4004 in ECL at home as your home computer...
