Bah! Back in my day, we counted ourselves lucky if we had an 8 MHz crystal clock. I had to make do with an uncomfortably temperature-dependent RC oscillator running at what I lightheartedly hoped was about 4 MHz.
(I'm actually pretty young, but I've done work with microcontrollers, which feels like stepping into the past. I know a guy in his late 20s who steadfastly refuses to switch from assembly to C, for reasons that come straight out of the 70s. It's a strange world we live in.)
