IMHO, I'm rather pessemistic. It's not like they didn't have an extra year
to fix the problem; the chances are, this is a hardware problem :< Still, 
can be hope. My emu xl-7 was shipped with an OS that paused every time you
changed patterns - totally unplayable. They fixed it the next day, though
there are still problems.

Sure, but back in the old days, everything was a lot simpler. It's not just
the feature creature - the stuff is just much more complicated from the
ground up. This is why there are bugs in everything these days, it's not
just lazy developers.
