I’m running version 2.7 beta 3 according to the splash screen that comes up in response to “info”.

Neither of those sound like a problem. Mine has 64 MB but much less iron oxide left.

That would be cool; I have run out  my monitor twice (both times, vertical scan collapsed and I switched to a backup monitor; once, shotgunning all capacitors fixed it, but I have yet to do that the second time) (Sorry Tony, time and brains both lacking here to do the job right :-) ).
At the moment, I’m running a backup megapixel display on the Cube board and a Sun 15” color monitor on the NextDimension. Windows slide nicely from one to the other, but it does slow things down a little to run that way.

However, if speed were the issue, the system would be in trouble; lots of screen real estate is one way it can still compete with my laptop!

Hee hee! Yeah, it’s an education in patience, as blazing fast as it was on introduction.
