Ok, it's possible I am mistaken. After all, I didn't have a whole load of sleep lst night... :)

I reckon it would be hardware issues. If they know exactly what the innards of the PC running it are, then then can sort problems out quickly. However, with the HUGE variety of components out there, any hardware conflicts would be very difficult to bug fix. At least this way they KNOW it's stable... (well, as stable as it is - shrug)

Hmm... altho most emulators must cope somehow... the only way that theory would really work would be if there was /some/ custom hardware on the motherboard, if not the OS...

This is all speculation on my part tho, with possibly a little bit of remembered conversation at the MD stand. It does sound like you know a lot more than me about the innards of pcs... shrug
