Hey, I have used both, and although the Atari 800 had Hacker II and Silent
Service available for it, the TRS-80 Color Computer had Dungeon of Daggorath
(early precursor of Doom and ilk).

Anyone going with the Atari must be a communistic, baby squishing fiend!

And, yes, many years of marriage has taught me that lying is sometimes
appropriate ("no, those pants don't make your ... !").

The Atari 800 with the BASIC cartridge is the ultimate for tech writer.
anything else is stupid, wrong, and perverted. Only nazis, baby squishers,
perverts use PCs. Only communists, satanists, and drug fiends use Macs.

You need to get yourself an illogical emotional attachment to hardware right
away if you plan to survive the action-packed world of tech writing. Lying
never hurts either.


Have a nice day. Don't eat hamsters.
