Let K be a compact space, and denote by eK its hyper-Stonean envelope. We discuss the class of spaces K with the property that eK is homeomorphic toe I, the hyper-Stonean envelope of the closed unit interval I. Certainly each uncountable, compact, metrizable space K belongs to this class. We describe several further classes of compact spaces K for which eK =e I. In fact, eK =eI if and only if the Banach spaces M(K) and M(I) of measures on K and I are isometrically isomorphic.
