What still eludes me is why exactly they're making OS 8.5 a minimum req.... I know Appearance Manager, Internet Config, and Sherlock, but it's easy enough to make a version that degrades nicely to OS 8.1.... I can understand not supporting System 7 and making 8.1 a minimum requirement, but 8.5 excludes a good deal of people (by the same token, I wouldn't mind seeing a Mozilla for Win3.1, but that's not capable of 32 bit, which is understandably harder to make work [coupled with a good deal of bugs in Win3.11]).
