And 2.1, and 2.2, afaihh. My referrence in the other part of the building
started to say you could use 2.3 and 2.4 with dozens of patches. Apparently,
2.5 was the first halfway decent, and in 2.6 already some of the performance
wins it had over 2.0-2.3 were lost again.

I don't know, personally. We only started with SunOS 5.x when ix was 6, and
only on >=270 MHz UltraSparcs.
