...[re supporting non-Linux Unix]
If we;re going to take that stance we will have a lot less
and a lot less users.
A year or so from now, if things keep going the way they have been,
nearly all of our users will be on either Linux or some flavor of
Microsoft Windows. Linux has been the most popular Unix to run XEmacs
on since 19.14.
This is not to say that I'm in favor of dropping portable Unix
support. I'm not. It's just not as important as it used to be.
 With regards to counts of downloads of binary kits from the FTP site.
