Since my wife has a Color Classic in her classroom, I can sympathize - 
and agree on the education market. On games and business apps, I've set 
640x480/256 as my minimum target. On the tutorial app I'm in the middle 
of right now though, I've had to go to 832x624 as a minimum in order to 
show all the graphics I _have_ to show! (Yes, simultaneously; you'll all 
get to see it when it's done.)

I'm just hoping that not too many people will be unable to run it, who 
need it...
