>> Ah. You didn't do much development then.
Actually, I did a fair bit - Since I had an MMU on my '030 board,
I just switched Enforcer on when I ran my dodgiest code,
though, so very few outright crashes :-). And, since my
Amiga took a few seconds to reboot (RAD, later HD with SFS), crashes
all that painful.
>but twice as fast, on the clock speed front.
well, clock speed comparisons between x86 and 68k didn't really work,
thanks to x86 register-starving and it's dodgy instruction set. Intel
on this though (and still do - witness the Pentium 4 - lots more
to wow consumers).
Also, on the Amiga, the the CPU was doing far less, since a lot of the gfx
processing and disk i/o was offloaded onto coprocessors.
