Neither do I, I can assure you, I have no liking for many things he and
his sons did to Atari... It just would've been interesting to see, if
the company hadn't of been sold for say another 6 months, just what
The 1450XLD computer would've been released
The 1090XL Expansion chassis would've been released along with the CP/M
module, 80 column module and several other cards.
The Atari 7800 would've been released in 1984 instead of 1986 and with
GCC's top notch coders at the helm, the games were impressived and
and then there is the Amiga chipset, would Amiga have pulled the same
stunt if Warner had stayed at the helm, would the 1850XL based on
Lorraine have been released and I have engineer notes taking about
"advance game system based on Amiga chipset" Imagine a gaming platform
in 1985 with the power of the Amiga behind it, it would've been like
having NEO GEO 10 years earlier.
Now where did I put that time machine....
