I disagree, as Apple has stopped development of A/UX... (there have been 
no new versions in any recent history, I believe the last gave support to 
the 950 or such... way back when...) As such, we can only be helping 
Apple, as third party products do, by providing services that Apple 
doesn't. And being a for-profit company this can only help :-)...

Ditto, if you guys want to port it to the Duo 230, I'd be happy to ship 
it off... (and it's lighter than a IIsi... :-) )
