My comments were based on information I received from Peter Tostado, the
sales manager at Microport.  I'm not pretending to represent their views
but just my understanding to contribute to uor mutual growth. 

Additionally, all I care to refer to is the 386 product in this news
group.  Ah, I see somebody has generously crossposted to the unix pc

Forgive my ignorance, and please explain the benefits of an "upgrade path"
when 4.0 will deliver all that 3.2 has and more.  If its price you're
worried about, my guess is it should be announced when the "official"
release comes out.  Just curious.
