I'm running 3 LEO's currently.
I'll start another to see what Version it is.
In order to paste from *that* one to here, I've got to go via a linux-file,
which I access via a  <keyMacro>
----------> boot-info is:
ETH Oberon (2.4.3) for Linux x86
System.Time 25.01.2011 00:35:27

Perhaps the mention of LNO confused you.
That's different from LEO.

I haven't use V4 lately, because I couldn't see how to use its NewsReader,
and LEO is good for seeing the <dir from where it's started> as 'local'.
Probably V4 can also be set to do that, but life is short.

PS. it seems that my modified LEO mailer *CAN* again get through my ISP's
TxAuthorisation; so I'm mailing this from LEO, with a Cc confirmation to my 
<not same ISP>
