Now you're making a lot more sense :)

This whole "debate" seems to all revolve around our individual
perspectives on what we want and need.

The hacker/tinkerer in me loves the idea of a new, fun toy to play
with - so, yeah, the more goodies, the better.

But the SCPU/Wheels/Wave user in me needs only one thing - better
graphics.  I want to pay Jeri some money for a card that I can
plug into my Commodore, and continue using all the same programs
I have been using all along, but now on a VGA monitor.  Then I
want people (like Maurice) to make special "SuperVIC" versions of
their programs to take advantage of the new resolutions.
