I have noticed the same thing.  I do not need serial access yet, but I
may need it in the future to interface with a handler.

What I ALSO found in the upgrade was the lack of full support for the
BEEP
function.  I use visual AND audio feed-back to the test tech for a
PASS/FAIL
indicator.  Now all I get are these wimpy beeps that never change
frequency
or duration.

What's interesting is I can run QBASIC in the DOS box and using the
SOUND
command to make all kinds of freq./duration combinations.  What gives?
Do
I have to buy Sound Blaster cards and speakers for each test station
now?
