Thanks to all who responded. There were 23, so I won't list them all here.
 I just want to make sure that I thank each and every one of you. If there
had been differences in the answers, I would have listed everyone anyway,
but everyone agreed.

Now, the summary. Basically, as I said, all answers agreed. Is this a
first, or what?!?!?! Wabi 2.0 is bundled with Solaris 2.4 and it has been
released (Solaris 2.4 with Wabi 2.0). If you are on maintenance it will be
shipped automatically. There seems to be some question as to whether it
will run on prior releases of the OS, but that shouldn't be a problem for
most because to get it, you get 2.4 anyway.

As far as getting it unbundled, that too is up in the air. There was no
definate answer. It was mostly just rumors. Personally, I doubt that it
will be available as such because if it comes with 2.4, then it probably
requires 2.4 to run. This is up to Sun. I for one would like to see it
made available for ftp though because of all of us that got it for free to
start out with (remember the coupons for 1.0 and 1.1?). I am currently
running 2.2 and 2.3 and would really appreciate a release for prior versions
of the OS.

I wrote the question because the project that I am moving to monday will be
ordering new Sun equipment and will have a need for Wabi 2.0. I am glad to
hear that it will be bundled with the OS when it is purchased for the
equipment. But in the meantime, a version for older OS's (2.2 and 2.3)
would be nice since the new project will be using our old equipment until
their new equipment arrives.

Again, Thanks to all who responded!
