In what sense?
We can still run Ancient NetBSD binaries and have had
backward-binary-compatible libc interfaces for a Long Time.
Yes, we probably _add_ things to our ABI more often than Solaris does,
but (with the exception of minor glitches) we've got a very good track
record of keeping the ABI backward-compatible.
