 I've used MSW on XT's (even a PC), and I don't remember its being all that
 slow. What were you doing? Editing War & Peace?

 I think they're pretty quick (faster than the IBM XT, anyway!)
Actually, It took a few minutes for works even to start up! We were editing
one-page documents. The Leading Edge Model D I have had two experiences with.
In one case it was ENIAC-speed (clock? oh, yeah, it's 3:30!) and the other it
was 286-speed.
