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. -- Robin Harbron email@example.com http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth http://www.psw.nu/ - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
