Who needs more than a 486?

This reader mail that I found in a 1994 issue of PC Computing that I had lying around speaks volumes.  I guess even in those days some folks were already exhausted with keeping up with the latest and greatest technologies, but was it so hard to see back then that this would become the norm and that the PC industry was going to continue to evolve in massive ways?  Hitting an impenetrable wall before Y2K when the industry was only 20 to 25 years old would have been pretty sad, methinks.
