What ever happened to Atari's $40 million dollar worldwide advertising on their wares?

The iDiot Forever Known As Sinclap may still be here - but as usual,
he's not all there :)

got started. He is an arrogant bonehead" - sinclap, before Steve did
come back and DID save Apple.

Been promising since the early 90's.

That sir is a long time to wait before following up. Though hardly
the longest I've seen.

Hi guys, I'm obviously very late to the game but I would love to get more
information about your personal experiences with the Atari ST line in
particular. My first computer was a TI944A and then I got an IBM PS/1 286
in 1991. Ever since, I've wondered whether I would have enjoyed having
purchased an Atari ST, an Amiga or even a Mac instead as my first real
computer. I know of Atari's history and especially realize that they
banked the whole company on the success of the Jaguar (which never
happened) but I'm curious what you guys think _should_ have happened,
especially since the Atari Falcon seemed like a pretty decent computer,
the operating system seemed to have evolved quite well and, as far as I
know, Atari still had a lot of money in the bank to continue a computer
hardware business had they chosen to do so back then.

I was more of an 8-Bit man, but comp.sys.atari.st still have life in
it, or at least lurkers who will respond if you ask if anyone is
there. Come on over!
