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?
