Re: How much longer?

To the original poster: I'm reading this rather late. I don't get this kind of question. Why? Two reasons. 1.

Re: the SpecNext turbo mode - 28Mhz

Well this certainly opens up all kinds of possibilities!
High level programming languages will be fast enough for decent games and other speed-dependent applications.
