Does anyone of the RAM experts have anything to say about this, although it is not likely we'll see a MRAM-powered C64 clone? One of its benefits was the ability to retain the information even after power-down, so many computers et.al. would not need to read back all the information when it boots up again. Thus future computers will have a quicker boot sequence. Where did I hear that before? Oh yes, recent versions of Microsoft Windows. > P.S. This is my first post in cbm-hackers. I always top-post.

Also you don't have the option to trim away excess parts of the previous message when you top-post.  How many computers typically start in the same state as you ended with? Possibly it is useful for suspending modes though. -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
