But not always. I've got an old copy of MultiMate that runs fine on my XT,
but won't work on my 486/66. The 486 is literally too fast for the software.
I also have a Spanish language tutorial with a similar problem: due to the
clock-doubling structure of the 486, timed tests and drills zip by in half
of their alloted time.

However, for -most- cases, Matt was correct.
