[Question] about Stallman's machines in the 68000/16000 class

Hello

I have a question about the following sentence: ( Stallman's writing )

"GNU is aimed initially at machines in the 68000/16000 class with
 virtual memory, because they are the easiest machines to make it
 run on."

I want to know what "macines in the 68000/16000 class" is.

I want to know brand and company of this computer system.

Examples,
Motorola System 8000 super-microcomputer or Motorola MPC system
or other company's computer...???

Please answer me !!!

Thanks.

This much be a really old quote.  Current GNU software runs on x86 PCs
(under both Linux and MS-Windows via cygwin) (x >= 3), PPCs (current
model Macs, esp. under Mac OSX), and just about any 32 or 64 bit UNIX
workstations and servers (Sparcs, Alphas, SGIs, HPs, IBM RS6000, etc.).

Old (no longer made) Sun Workstations (eg Sun3s).  Later model Mac IIs and
successors and Amigas also (68030 and later systems). NeXT workstations.
And some others.

I don't know if anyone makes a general purpose computer with either the
68K or 16K processors.  You may find some VME SBCs, but these would be
meant for a rack mounted embedded system.
