Because it's part of the ISA definition, the GG2 Bus+ has a 14.3.. MHz
oscillator just to provide that one signal... it's the second most
expensive single part on the board (behind the 22V10 GAL). If I ever
do another build, I may just make it an option, since I've never seen
an I/O board that uses it either, certainly not the IDE, Ethernet, or
parallel/serial boards that are the options supported under AmigaDOS.
