Is there ever going to be a 32bit front end.  In my opinion, its sorely
needed.  I am using mma with NT 3.51 Service Pack 1 on a 486/66 w/
52Mb ram.  When I bring up a perf meter or qslice (from the nt
resource kit), I see that the "csrss" process is churning like crazy
when the kernel and the frontend are running, even when I'm not doing
anything. .  
My NT/windows friends tell me that that may be a consequence of the
32bit code communicating with 16 bit stuff, or the way the
client-server communication is done.  do you have any ideas as
to what the problem is?
