Great speed Squeak

I just started using my older Pentium 120 laptop again, but I was finding Squeak a quite slow compared to the Pentium II 300.
When my battery was low I checked the power settings. It turns out it was set to run in power saving mode at a very slow processor speed.
I changed it to run at full speed, and it feels like a real speed daemon! Amazing! This software is one of the few that makes older and older hardware ever more viable.
Thanks to the VM and the Morphic teams for their great work!
