Not true, you have 8 MB of emulated chip ram on Draco AND WinUAE and the software will use it seamlessly providing there is a way to emulate the blitter.

It won't make any difference for games obviosuly. But they would work the same way they did before, by ignoring the page mode altogether.

Another possible improvement: onboard PS/2 mouse interface on top of the Amiga mouse interface. I am not sure how the mouse port is wired inside the existing models but a simple PIC does a good job of converting the protocol. This might even be offered as an optional add-on.
