Interview with Stefany Allaire
I recently had the opportunity to do an interview with developer Stefany Allaire, the creator of some pretty unique products like the C256 Foenix Gen X and the FPGA YM2612 replacement.  I'm really interested in her vision of a "new retro" platform and am curious to see how the project evolves!  This discussion is a bit on the technical side, but hopefully you'll all still enjoy it!
