I have 10.20 on a 715/50 and a 712/60 and both run OK. I had other 
desktops besides CDE, too. I'm back to CDE for some reason I can't 
remember, though. The 712 is sort of a terminal server for a 700/RX.

I asked HP for 11.0 at the magic time it seems, since they sent me a CD 
(maybe 2) of 11.0 for free. "Handmade" copy too. Kinda odd. I don't know 
that 10.20 was ever available for free, but it might have been.

It is good to know that 11.0 will run on a 715. Since this is a 100, I 
may try it. Thanks.

Sorry if this is "old news" I was actually away from email for a couple 
of days. (Yes it was very difficult!)
