Does this have to be in Stalker, if it's already in ROM? Why waste user
memory for a functionality already build in?

The Desktop always uses direct jumps into all functions...

Forget about those (censored) Line-A-Speeders like Turbo ST, Quick ST. Get
NVDI from Bela instead. It offers as much speed as Quick ST or Turbo ST,
but is more compatible like these two (ever tried to run .TOS or .TTP
programs in Gemini's Mupfel window while QuickST/TurboST were active?) and
has a GDOS build in.

I think you've forgotten an important thing for users of a modem (or the
serial port in general). At first, RTS/CTS works without ANY patch program.
No more messing around with HSFIX, TURBOCTS, TOS14FIX or whatsoever. It just
works, even at high speed. No problems here with my HST...
Secondary, TOS 2.06 is prepared to use alternate RAM. It's going to be much
easier to have more than 4 Megs on a normal ST.
Third, TOS 2.06 is much safer when regarding accs and resolution changes.
Did you ever try Atari's new modular control panel on a ST with TOS < 2.00?
It offers a point "Switch Off" (may sound a little bit different, I only have
the German version) because resolution changes with .ACC installed on these
old TOS-Versions may cause everything (The ACCs get no information about it,
they think they have their memory, but they do not have it). On TOS => 2.00,
there are no such problems.
