It was ported to Alpha (I can't remember whether I ever used it myself on
Linux/Alpha, but I definitely ran it on OSF/1 and DEC Unix). After having
had a closer look at the code for the IA64 port now, I'm really surprised
that this ever worked...

I can understand that very well. :-)

ol(v)wm mainly. Most of the people asking for XView probably have been
using Slowlaris before. And then of course, I'm using it in one of my own
applications which is why I originally decided to keep XView alive. But I
guess now it's finally time to let it die...
