Alright babes.... Motorola did start out by calling them things 32-bit, until
they ran into a lot of derisive comments. I still remember a flyer that
claimed this, AND the flak flyer.

Of course they have learned the error of their ways.... but
the damage has been done. And half-baked(!!!!!) implementations are not the
most beautiful of things to work with.
