How good is the IBCS2 SVR4 emulation.  All I hear about is SCO 
emulation, but I'm kind of curious if applications like Applix for SVR4 
would run.

Pretty good. I can run shells and X programs etc. Of course, SVR4 isn't a 
standard any more than SVR3 was. There are several flavours of SVR4 with 
slight but, ah, interesting differences in the kernel interface :-).
