Sure there's a speed difference. Xy3 is faster. But with modern
processor speeds, the difference, in my opinion, is insignificant,
and outweighed by the greater capabilities of Xy4: bigger files and
DeFined blocks, greatly improved memory management, expanded command
set, enhanced XPL, menus if you want them, extensibility via U2,
etc., etc., all with almost-complete backward compatibility with

If you opt for Xy4, the *only* version to use is v4.018. There is NO
reason to use earlier versions; they have bugs that were ironed out
by v4.017 (4.018 adds a Y2K fix).
