The RAM call model died with the 68000 language in which it was expressed. One can say that was inevitable since PPC is, in itself, great. Or one can call it ritual suicide on the altar of progress because while using a CPU language maintaining compatibility, the Intel family has outstripped PPC. (Probable conclusion: 680?0 would have been neck end neck with Pentium III and Macs still many times faster than Win because of the ROM. Alas. I am very much in a peasoup fog as to what is the current FB strategy or even Apple strategy, say with respect to emerging libraries. Can anyone clarify? FB could have handled the "generalized ROM" scheme that went under a name like "universal headers". But that's dead? Ignorant and perplexed I remain... Larry S.
