Certianly true in this case. I was at Unix Expo and there were a number
of systems running Vr4. Intel had already displayed packaging and it,
ISC and Esix have announced tentative release dates.  *Tentative*.

I was told at the show that there is MUCH work still to be done, especially
on the networking support, before it's releasable product.

As for SCO, they haven't even got 3.2 out of the gate in big numbers,
let alone release 4.
