The workbench ran on most Unix systems (Sun, DEC, HP...) and under DOS on PC's, although most of our experience was gathered with Suns. It does not have a teletype interface--it only runs as a graphical program. It requires at least 16MB of ram on UNIX and 8MB under DOS, plus 40 or more MB of disk (for program storage and swapping).
Xerox makes the system available at no cost by anonymous FTP under a license that allows for noncommercial uses of the workbench in research and education. The system and its documentation (in Kaplan and Maxwell 1996) are located at parcftp.xerox.com in the directory /pub/lfg/.
