But still dog slow, even on my [P3--650MHz] linux box I find it annoyingly slow, and I often end up clicking on buttons twice, or more. On the Amiga (060/PPC/CVPPC) dragging subwindows inside rebol windows is like running a macemul in HAM on a lowend A1200, faster than X doesnt really say much as X is per def a slow memory greedy dog, no matter what hardware ;) -- kolla
