I suppose you don't consider PageStream 2.2 a DTP program??? Don't theyQuote:
>Please tell us all how this is posible with Standard A500 or is this
>the Reason that the Amiga does not have very many DTP programs..??
even publish it for the toy atari? Of course the Amiga's is one version
HIGHER than yours.
The Super Denise chip that is now included with new A500's sold in Europe
(and soon to be in the states also) gives Productivity mode which displays
640 X 480 flicker free on ANY VGA type (or multisync monitor). This means
a user can go out and buy an $89 paper white mono VGA and use it with his A500.
The Super Denise can be had for about $55 for older A500's ($55 + $89 STILL
adds up to less than the price of a new toyari monochrome - in case you can't
Kinda like the monstrosity known as the STe??? TOS 1.06 hardly runs anything!!Quote:>Also I here that the sales of A500 + is now gone minus, they are all taking
>them back as they can't play games on this new machine any more..??
Also, how many of your ST GAMES run on your beloved TT??
The amiga doesn't NEED a PD compiler. There are still publishers thatQuote:>And were are all your PD C compilers, this main Amiga chaps here don't
>seem to know much about them..
Since the Amiga is a TRUE multitasking machine, we can do more than one thingQuote:>Also have you thought that we have better things to do with our
>machines than to spend time chatting on the net...:-)..
at a time. Try THAT with your ST! (and don't even bother mentioning
multigem.... That's about as good a multitasker as switcher is on the Mac)
Also I guess keeping an eye out for some loser who will buy your 'computer'
keeps the average Atarian pretty busy too!
And MY goddamn pointer never has flickered EITHER!!! In Fact the ONLY
non-flickering pointer I've ever seen on a toy atari is when it is running
under Spectre! Heh heh heh.....
