but yeah you push the button on the fly and it switches the speed your cpu runs.

It wasnt for overclocking, it was for backwards compatability. Back then, older programs were coded to run on a certen CPU speed, and if your CPU was much faster then that, the program would actualy speed up and run to fast (like a speed hack in CS:S), so the "turbo" button, when pressed, would make the computer run at the normal speed (100 MHz, say, for an early Pentium MMX), and when you unpressed (is unpressed even a word?) it would slow down to some older standard (like the speed of a 486, or a 286, or something like that). Basicly, it was a button to make your computer run slower for older apps, but "turbo" sounds better then "slow"

The higher clock speed wasn't an "overclock". The processors were just underclocked when you DIDN'T have the turbo button on. I believe the purpose was to save power, and/or slow down the processor for games or other apps that went too fast if the processor was too fast. There were several combinations of speeds that turbo buttons were used with. The one I had was on a 486, and it took the processor from 33mhz to 66mhz.

Also, I really don't get the title of this thread, and how it relates to the author's first post...

so they are coming out with a new os? so soon? alredy? or u mean it will be bigger in size?

I have one of those computers sitting around my house also with the turbo button. but as you said turbo sounds better then backwards compatiblity slower downer thingy majigy. but yes I know what you mean with some programs running WAY too fast if you don't have the speed setup right on them. still have a few of those old dos games on my p3 that I had to use a speed controller for.
