No one has to throw out their SuperCPU. It's still a good tool. It's just NOT the be-all and end-all of Commodore hardware development. If Jeri will include a 65816 option in the board, it will make things easier for programmers who depend on the '816. I'm hoping she will try it :-) Just as you said, even if the first SuperVIC board doesn't answer our every desire, I still intend to own one and have fun with it. --- Robin Harbron <email@example.com> wrote: > I'd tend to think that most people really clamouring > for the > improved video have already bought (invested in) a > SCPU, so > a faster 65xx doesn't really appeal much. > > The new OSes being developed are made with the 65816 > in mind - > I really don't think these fellows would want to go > back to > the 65(C)02 when developing an OS.
