<You always say that Allison, but actually the MicroVAX-II emulates more

I know what the book said... but read the statement carefully.  I'll reword
it EXECUTES more emulated instructions.  Seems the mix and emulation paths 
were slower that MVII also versions of VMS for MVI were less than optimum 
for it.  I'd think if the IO is optimized and a SCSI card used under netBSD
the MV-I night do fairly well.

I think we agree it's still the slowest vax going.  Wait... I have one 
slower My ADVICE, A MVII (Ka630) Cpu on a board ofr incircuit emulation
and testing, run at speeds that don't exceed the eproms on it (250ns!)
Though from ram it beats MVII if your using the 40mhz clock.  Kinda 
interesting to watch at 2mhz!
