That sure is one long feature list. Last I'd heard, 78 of the 150 Flash ROM's were spoken for - If there's any left by the time Wakefield is upon us I'll buy one there. (That'll give me time to save up too)

Yes, having the OS in ROM should be faster, even although it does not actually run from the ROM. My understanding is that with Select the RISC PChas to first boot into 4.02, which involves copying it into RAM (where it runs faster) then softloading the Select ROM image, and then booting into Select. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.
