Simply... it's fun!! Furthermore, the new features are a 1st step (I hope) to get an MSX3 into the future and for real! Smile

Like Steve... I think different, I think MSX3!! Cool

Like, like, like! Smile Will try shortly if I find some time.

Don't care much for a new logo if it's not really a new machine. But don't mind that much either...
