I'd say Solaris 8 or later. That's the earliest release commonly
available for xemacs binary kits from Solaris-friendly sites like
Even going back to 8 will be a challenge since modern features
like GNOME/KDE were AFAIK not even available until 9; and even
in 9, were rather buggy. Only with 10, do you see a "quality"
GNOME (which Sun now calls JDS). And some will say that it will
only catch up to Linux GNOME "quality" in 11 due out next summer
(instead of "quality" maybe we should say current or rather recent).
Of course, we are talking about future development. People will still
be able to grab the old sources at xemacs.org if they want them, right?
