That's very nice, but I was hoping for System V Release 4.0 in the first
quarter of 1990.  As I recall, perfectly-adequate, on-line documentation
was being shipped with systems sold in the early 1980's.

According to the November 1, 1989 issue of UNIX International GAZETTE,
Release 4.0 was running on a 386/486 at the UNIX EXPO tradeshow, thanks
I believe to NEC, and a pre-release version has been available to both
ISC and SCO for some time.
