I take myself as (very non-representative) example: I love coding for 030/DSP, 060 stuff is only some bonus, when I don't have energy to get my hands dirty But. I'm really lazy. I'm lazy to rewrite some of math routs which use square root precalcs, sin/cos precalcs... into fixed point math. And I'm even more lazy -- to optimize my stuff for <4 MB (splitting into parts, compress, share things) ... so in the end my demos requite FPU, 14 MB RAM and they don't show anything worth of it

We will see if it works or not.
We found too late it works with small IDE ribbons only. And we didn't have a small ribbon for 2 drives.

However it wouldn't help us back then, as I had to go 200Km to another town, to repair the Falcon.
