John, you deserve major credit and recognition for even attempting to 
do video!  And to have Star Wars playing on the CoCo is even 
better.  We know the CoCo can't become a portable DVD player or even 
match the quality, but that's not what this is about.  We have taken 
a 1983 design and applied modern thinking to the same hardware, and 
we keep getting these cool tricks that were impossible back in the 80's.

It proves that software is more powerful than hardware.  ;)
