That is significant.

Although the hardware capabilities seem likely to be quite similar, not
only is the Central Point board no longer available, but while it was
available, Central Point was very unenthusiastic about having any
third party software written for it.

It is not always clear in the literature for the Catweasel as to which
capabilities are theoretical possibilities, v which ones are currently
supported by available software. And when there is a statement such as
that it can read Commodore 64 disks, does that mean that it can read and
create raw images, or transfer files to and from?
