I looked at the Mist v1.3 which looks alot better than the earlier version.
I think the MIST is a good implementation of the generalised FPGA computer.
Does the MIST support Hi-Colour and SMSQ/E, for me, that would be a priority and can the MIST connect to a QL, QPC2, by QL Net or Sernet?
Not sure about the price being cheap, I would say mid-range, but very marketable. I do like the the MIST, but it is the sftware implementation that makes the machine a success.
The switch looks to be a slide switch.
Do we need more, yes I think we need as many new hardware solutions as possible.
Back on topic....
What new software will be available for the QL version 9 board?
