      probably, 1 mhz, 4 mhz, whatever. For the applications
      that are operating on s-100 systems, I'm sure speed
      isn't critical. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) for
      instance doesn't require alot of speed (CNC lathes,
      mills, etc.). Often these apps are programmed in
      interpreted (as opposed to compiled) BASIC.
      Interpreted languages are popular in robotic systems.
