That may be true with quik itself - but console usage of OF is a PITA for
most of the older (OF 1.0.5-ish) machines - I can't get my 9600 to retain
the re-mapping of kbd/screen for more than one reboot - i.e. set the OF vars
(using BootVars) reboot - OF is OK to screen & kbd.   Next reboot they are
reset back to point to 38400 serial :-((( ...

BootX is much nicer... :-)  especially for those of us who still _need_ to
use MacOS for other work...
