There's another aspect to this issue that I run into on my lisp machine
(a 3670) as well as other computing platforms I use: As machines get
faster, the software produced for these machines tends to be more
Of course, this phenomenon is not restricted to Lispms.
Recently, while running OpenWindows on a Sparcstation I noticed
that it took almost as long to click right, get the standard
"desktop" menu, select "Properties..." and get the properties
dialog as it does to get the "Attributes" menu from the System
Menu under Genera! Of course, I was running a Lisp at the time,
but then again, I was running Lisp under Genera as well...
