The Atari ST computer has a special place in my heart -- one of the first halfway modern GUI and mouse based computers with a megabyte of RAM, it was an excellent machine to hack around on. Serious desktop publishing software brought it into the office, built in MIDI ports and an early laptop format made it very popular with musicians, and a fun 'scene' brought it many groundbreaking 'demos' and games (with a large proportion of RPGs and shooters if I do say so myself) -- truly, it was "Power Without the Price."
I "cut my teeth" on the Atari ST, walking miles and miles to find the (only) local Atari store to buy games and utilities with my entire pay cheque, and generally did a lot of keen hacking around. Ran (and wrote a FidoNet system!) a BBS for most of a decade, wrote a lot of assembly, GFA Basic and C code, and really just got into the "scene" while working as a salesman for Atari at a local store.
