GopherVR was once available in the following UNIX flavors:
  DEC Alpha
  SGI Irix
  Sun Solaris (i386)
  Sun Solaris (sparc)
  Sun SunOS
A public announcement was also made about an upcoming release for the i386 
Windows OS (version ?), but this software may have just been "vaporware".

  At one point, (somewhere on this mailing list) Paul Lindler said he relased 
the source. But UNIX? Totally Plan 9. :)
