Well, this is just plain wrong.  The registered version is far faster.  And
with a P5-133 costing $350 (yes, you can buy a motherboard and P5-133 for 
$500) the "exectutor" runs 680x0 apps as fast as a $1000 PowerMac.

Apple is in deep deep trouble - face it.  The Amiga of the '90s.
Softwindows is horrible and requires 16megs of RAM.
