It is my understanding from highly placed sources within IBM that there is No
release 5.  There may be more server level stuff but the desktop is
'functionally stable'.  There will also be no support for Merced when it ever
arrives. Sorry. (yes I truly am!)

Sure there are devices driver updates and some minor functions added via service
packs but that's all she wrote.

Anyone who proves me wrong is up for a free dinner in SFO!  Find me at CUDS any
