I've run !65Host on ARM2 machines and I think they're impressively
quick, certainly seeming as fast as a reel Beeb. I've also been
recently impressed by Acorn's software PC emulator, running DOS on an
Acorn A3020. I haven't done any objective testing or benchmarks, but
playing about with the emulated DOS seemed remarkably usable on such
old hardware. Significantly faster than PC-Task running on an Amiga
500, for example.
