It would be cool to have a proper driver for Novas as well, especially since
Nova-VDI apparently isn't supported anymore. I will put my Nova in the
drawer when I get the Eclipse (can you imagine my disappointment everytime I
check my mailbox and *still* can't see any parcels from Cortex?), but it
will probably find it's way back to my Afterburner-Falcon once Tempest is
shipped and I assemble that second Falcon :-)

Btw. I will download the updated bitplane-driver tonight and see if it works
on my system.
