And indications are that RAM for 486's will be plentiful in the not too
distant future, as FPRAM (and even EDO) are now obsolete.  Some business
did move the RAM out of their old 486's into Pentiums, but on the next
upgrade cycle, perfectly good RAM will have to be mothballed, so with a
bit of luck, there may be a glut of secondhand RAM soon. :)
