 I take it you're referring to TOS and GEM. I won't bite, there've been enough
Amiga<->ST wars. And both platforms are dead ! But I can't resist one jab.
 I guess all those musicians who used it and loved STs were wrong.
 And I have an A1000, 2000, and 3000 but still have more fun on my ATARI !!
 I guess WIMPS can have fun. And to think you hardly got a rise out of the
Apple people except for Cameron, but he's really a Commie man. Oh well
you realize you're an anachronism don't you. Have you reached 30 yet ?
  BTW my grandparents name was Larsen. Are you sure your parentage
wasn't swedish ?(So you want to start a flame-war, d'ya ? try that one)
 But we do have Sam Tramiel in common. Our glorius Hasbro leader.

  Hmmm, Old habits are long-lasting. Could'na he'p m'sef.
