An interesting point was brought up in net.games.video recently.  Apparently,
some people aren't aware that when Tramiel bought the Atari Home Computer
company, he did NOT also get the Coin-op division (which was profitable).
Anyway, there was a third division called AtariSoft, which developed games
for ALL home computers.  Did Tramiel get AtariSoft, too?  If he did,
does that mean that we can all expect to see the 520 ST get games like
Defender, Robotron, and Pac Man (while the Amiga doesn't, presumably)?

As an aside, Atari was once a $2 Billion company.  When Tramiel bought it,
he put little money down, assumed a large amount of debt (which a few
people I know didn't get paid) - al for $75 Million... what a downfall.
On the other hand, Commodore lost $318 Million last year.
