Yes, It looks like random

if we load a ROM in sideway RAM.. it is not lost when we switch off the computer ????

Anyway I suppose SPEECH, and other ROMS I have on 1.2 and 2.0, are not essential ?

Yes, anything loaded into sideways ram will be lost when you switch off.

None of those other roms are essential - they are not part of the operating system, and were just roms that you could buy and add to the system if you wanted them.

OS 3.5 (and 3.2) are a bit different in that some of the roms (not all) contain parts of the OS, so they have to be present.

now I can say :

An internal CF disc is not useful for a novice.... except for saving my basic program very fast....

A "Gotek only" solution is the best choice.
