Hi Willem,

While I agree with you about the arm processors I think continuing
this discussion, argument, debate, whatever you want to call it is
pointless.  Jeremy, Jim, and the other VB 6 developers have their
opinions and we have ours.  Arguing about it on list for days on end
isn't going to  change anyones mind.  Time will settle the argument
one way or another.
