In the latest issue of PC Magazine is a column describing a Microsoft 
"industry standard" called PC98, which has started to be implemented 
already. Bottom line, it will put an end to the ISA bus. All 
peripherals will run on the 66-100 Mhz PCI or AGP bus.

On the plus side, this will put an end to IRQ problems, and also be 
a significantly faster bus. On the negative side, it's gonna leave a 
lot of orphan ISA devices with no place to plug them in new 

Anyone in the computer biz have any more info on all this?
