Symptomatic of the problem inherent in closed and semi-closed architectues like the A1200 and C64. Eventually you want to expand, but how? I think I read somewhere that the expansion port was originally intended to house a BASIC enhacement cart, because Commodore intended to dump BASIC 2.0 eventually. The SuperExpander was released, but Simon's BASIC was far superior. Then, came the REU. Now, how did Commodore expect users to write REU software with the new BASIC? You can only have one cart plugged in at a time. This is where the Apple II really has an advantage over the C-64. 7 slots available and each gets its own I/O block and seperate variable block. Pretty damn slick if you think about it. --- Jeri Ellsworth <email@example.com> wrote: > Hi, > I read somewhere a guy described the Amiga 1200 > motherboard as big dongle for the rest of his > computer. :) ===== Get a FREE 6Mb webmail box from go6502! - http://www.geocities.com/profdredd As low as 2.99% Intro APR from NextCard! - http://www.nextcard.com/index6.html?ref=aff0074521 PayPal is the FAST FREE and SECURE way to send money! - https://secure.paypal.x.com/refer/pal=profdredd%40yahoo.com __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
