It's a darn tempting thing, because you get an EP2S60 "for a limited 
time".  Unfortunately that means that you won't be able to get updates 
once your one-year subscription expires, since it won't work with webpack.

It's still tempting, though.  M-RAM and multiplier arrays, and of course 
more speed.

Presumably there will be a Cyclone II version eventually, too.  Cyclone 
II has multipliers, but no M-RAM, and is presumably slower than Stratix II.
