Hey, I remember working on a PC that actually used hardware-level EMS
- not the virtualized compatibility stuff.  A utility could be used to
set up a disk cache in EMS if you didn't need it for applications
(since most applications didn't know anything about it), and I think
the board also had a RTC - you had to run a utility to sync the system
clock to it.  No worries about replacing the CMOS battery on the
original PC since there wasn't one...
