I seem to sympathize Atari more, for many reasons. First a lot of parts and the scene, reminds of similar things on CPC. Then, the 16bit is still pushed, while the Amigeans have move to the AGA32bit machines. I personally still enjoy more the nice oldschool AtariSt 16bit demos that are released. Then, I think people seem to be more friendly and nice than in Amiga. (However it might be a feeling only, usually smaller scenes seem to have more sympathetic persons, or perhaps (the reason if it's a feeling) big cult famous scenes (Amiga or C64) seem to be more creepy to me because they are more 1337 and I see people under a diferrent view. But small scenes are nice and I expect people to be more friendlier or something. But that's just a feeling. Don't know if it's true. Perhaps people in bigger and culter scenes feels to be 1337 and there are enough people, so they can pretend to be more cool and fuckers and stuff, while in smaller scenes, people are alone and humble with their humble computer scenes, or perhaps that's my vision towards people of diferrent scenes, or perhaps both)

Yeah,.. the last was HEH =)

But AtariSt and Atari800XL and their demos rules anyways =)

When we were kids we used to laught at dudes who owned /|\ or C= or ZX or Schneider. Because of the gfx, bacause of the snd, because of quantity of games(!). But it is up to the users in fact.
Anyway for the sceners, every(!) machine is splendid, if there are demos for it =). ..over.

All sceners should become one and get along, share there ideas and code!

I was always Amiga because thats was the first puter for me.

Amiga for me :)

But only cause I had an amiga and not an atari. Back in those days I used to think amiga was the best, atari sucked big time. And it was easy to find flaws with the atari (i seem to remember it had single-sided disks or something for eg.) and slag it off. Well, i was 12 or so, forgive me :)

Atari for me... The amigascene has produced way too much crap the last 5-6-7 years...

The fuji montain? Nahh... I think the 'OK' symbol is really OK. Maybe because I saw fuji almost in every Atari demo =(. But wait, it was C= on the old Amigas. Pity that in plastic, not in Alluminium.

Amiga 'made' so many standards... No question about that machine... Just a [pity that abandonned =(] KING!!!

Amiga forever!
i hope i will can use an Amiga OS in the future in remplacement of this crappy window$
Amiga and C64 were definitelly the coolest hardware out there. But I still vote for Atari out of sympathy :)

Nosfe: Rock On (:
Well ... in 8-Bit times there was a fast and powerfull computer and there was a very slow computer with cool graphics and sound. I prefered the more powerfull computer and had chosen an ATARI XL.
In 16-Bit times the AMIGA was allways the better choice.
The last "well done" AMIGA was the 4000 one. The "Pegasos" or "AMIGAone" builds are pure nonsense, because they are build on buggy PC Hardware. So today I still prefer the PC with high quality Hardware. At the end it looks, that the PC won the Battle between ATARI and Commodore ;)

oh and atari rocks but that's more of a matter of taste and this whole thread is retarded
