so cool! i still regret selling my ATARI 520 STFM to buy that 486, it was the beginning of the end of the true good computer era, funny that PC crapped out and died on me because i switched keyboard and some electricity glitch in it. I couldn't afford a new PC for a long time after that, had to write all my programming code ON PAPER. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
It's so odd that. Atari just wasn't big here in the States by that time. I remember the Atari 400 and 800 doing well (more-so the 800 because of the 400's chicklet keyboard) and, of course, the consoles but, after that, more-or-less nothing. Seems they went gang-busters in Europe.
ST's and Falcons... My cousin had a Lynx, but those didn't really sell well either.

I don't know why they didn't sell too well here, they look like they were much better than Commodore and Tandy's (at least Tandy's low-end) junk. I always like seeing those Atari machines running GEM too. I recently was reading up on this:



Someone getting GemDos to run on the Apple Lisa, (same processor, right?) Also, if you follow that stuff history, Atari TOS, Mint... and see where it's at now, kinda shocking:

I have to admit, those tutorials are kinda classy. I forgot about F8 to select text. :thumbup:
