When I was at City university they made a big switch to Solaris 2.2 or
2.3 on the central servers. Some of the smaller boxes on it included
classics. It... wasn't pretty. If they were rebooted every other day
then the kernel memory leaks were manageable.

I'd concur with the above - by 2.4 things were starting to get usable.
