Well, if you're not sure of what your definition is of "a true Unix OS" then
a challenge or question as to if a PC will run them kind of loses its meaning.

I venture to say that most folks would classify Solaris as a "true Unix OS"
and yes, they mostly ran on Sparc CPU server systems in rooms with false
floors and big A/C's.  And yes, in the early days, the workstation varieties
used Sparc CPU's and not your typical Intel or AMD processor.

But, today Solaris runs just fine on Intel.  So, I would submit that as an
answer to your question.
