        I found the Coherent FAQ online last night and it seems to
date from sometime in 1993 but it has a ton of excellent info about
it. It states that Version 3.2 would run on a 286 while Version 4.0
required a 386 processor. If I remember correctly, I was running
Version 1.0 or 1.1 and this was in 1990 after I had seen a review of
it in 'PC Sources'. It was the main IBM-type magazine that I read at
the time, though I also liked 'PCM', 'Amiga World' and 'Micro80'.
For anyone interested in the FAQ, it can be found at:
