stevef: The Castle thinking it would break everything argument is utter nonsense -- the applications needed updating to 32-bit anyway! Additionally, all C programs have an AIF header and BASIC programs aren't affected -- is there really that much software that you've found problems with? I totally agree that the manner in which it appeared was poor, but most people shouting about it don't seem to actually understand how simple the header is to add, or how it allows the OS to finally introduce some sane memory protection.
