That's a 486 at 100MHz, not a Pentium. The 200MHz Pentium manages around 45FPS, so all other things being equal you might expect around 22FPS from a 100MHz Pentium.

:) It's something I took for granted, having been using OS 3.9 for 20+ years now I'd forgotten that it wasn't like that in 3.1. And 3.2 has more or less inherited 3.9's Workbench.
