Absolutely. You could define some arbitrary lines here, but why?

Some (all?) IBM Xstations (sold alongside RS/6000 installs) were 80186 -
not exactly high performance workstations, but I think the only place I've
personally seen a '186 in the wild. I trash-picked older RS/6000s to
replace these rather terrible machines. ;)

Glad this got mentioned only because it is still a favorite of mine.
Maybe I'll try to hack a bus together between a Raspberry Pi, my SYM-1,
and one of my 68HC11 EVBs. </troll>
