megahertz war


I had to "laugh" when I read an article in Atari ST Review magazine #24, by Andrew Wright. How right he was about the times, I do wonder if he had a crystal ball? (if so, it was probably a GEM program)

By the mid-1990s, the PC industry had taken over to claim the crown for the winner of the computer wars. Sure, our days were numbered which was partly due to poor management with Atari's lack of enthusiasm over previous years to give us more megahertz at regular intervals... So, our beloved Atari TOS computer began fading away into the darkness and, by the late 90s, every ST was probably hidden away inside thousands of attics... I jest, but the millennium days where sure gloomy. Cheer up because it also happened to those Commie computers too!
