I have netscape 2.x and Linux 1.2. I have no problems. I have hit
sights where I will lock up the window manager though. I have a strange
setup. I have a Vaxstation/3100 running VMS as a X-server. I run the
motif window manager from my Sequent and I telnet into the Linux box
(my communications gateway) to run Netscape. Just think, all this from
my living room. Maybe "wonko" has some competition?
