This brings up a question I've been thinking about, sparked by someone at Gibson telling me that getting 30 pin simms is hard. I know that chip design changes all the time, and OSs and apps are rewritten to use them and new processors as well. Why is Gibson/Aurisis struggeling with using old hardware? (Gibson expressed problems with availability and quality) Is the port to new hardware that big an undertaking?
