Solaris 2.4

Bzzzt. Wrong answer.

I worked at Sun in the OS group and the first release that had my code
in it was Solaris 2.4. I also have bugfixes in 2.3.

Solaris 1.x is the BSD-based stuff; Solaris 2.x is the SVR4-based stuff.
 SunOS is the OS proper and Solaris is the entire environment. SunOS
4.x went with Solaris 1.x and SunOS 5.x went with Solaris 2.x.

The way I remember this, the first release that bore the "Solaris"
name when released was 2.5 . Before it was called SunOS, of which
the last release was 4.1.4 if I remember correctly. After Solaris 2.5,
the previous SunOS 4.x releases were renamed "Solaris 2.4". I think
that the list of releases that I played with at one point or another is

SunOS 4.1.1 Rev B
SunOS 4.1.4, aka Solaris 2.4 (or was it 4.1.3?)
Solaris 2.5
Solaris 2.6
Solaris 2.7
Solaris 8
