"Anyway, it was pretty good tech at the time. If it weren't for the 16-bit limited address space"

Limited address space? When it was introduced people wondered what they would do with all the space available. It only had a limited address space because the design was so popular and lasted such a long time. By the time the 386 was introduced, the PDP-11 was already 15 years old.
