And the ST I think, when he was kicked out of CBM in 84(?), he took over the struggling Atari.

Interseting history, i never knew.

Best days for me were the C64 after having been introduced to computing with the VIC 20.
Had an Atari 800 for a bit but was never really satisfied.

Keep meaning to install a C64 emulator to remind me how primitive yet groundbreaking  it really was.  Happy days though :)
