I never disable memoryprotection. I even retired my fastest GEM computer - my Firebee - because of no memory protection. But what do I know, I have only 25 years of experience with MiNT.

True... It sounds horrendous idea to run multitasking OS without memory protection. Sooner or later whole system will crash when buggy software with bad memory handling is used. Better to use single TOS for buggy legacy software.
