I forgot all about Sunview. That brings back memories. There was a slide 
show graphics demo in Sunview that popped up a picture of a topless guy 
that always took me by surprise. It was like nice sunset, bridge, 
sailboat, beach, tree, half naked guy, air plane, etc.  It may have only 
been in SunOS 2. It was odd though.

X11 was really unusable without the FPU. All the window redraw stuff 
used it.  That's what I was told anyway.
