What i meant to say is that as new features do creep in, there would be
changes in the interface too... You can see that if compare the
interface of a couple of various different budget cards..

>From TT budget cards to the Twinhan .. You will find that the interface
is too different, Eventhough you have a similar Fusion chip.. As time
goes by even newer chips will repeat as in history.. For example
consider the old Rockwell 878 and the Fusion 878..
