  There's no active components on the "backplane". OK there mayu be a few
LEDs of something to show presense of power but no vital components vital
to the system. The S-100 backplanes are a good example. The CPU, system
memory, video circuits, I/O ports etc are all on plug in cards.

  Usually but not always.

   Both CPUs (and bus drivers, clocks, etc) will try to drive the buss
simultanously and one of them will lose in a spectacular way!
