I had called a local dealer a few weeks back and was told that I would
have no problem running the new 5.0 on our 386/ix system.  Knowing
never to trust dealers, I called WP Corp. and asked them just to make
sure.  They emphatically told me that it would not work.  They said
that they had expected the 5.0 Xenix port to run under 386 Unix because
of the built-in Xenix compatibility, but that this has not been the
case.  They specifically mentioned printing as one area that won't
work (that's enough for me).

Oh well.  Looks like we'll stick with Smart 3.1 for now.
