A little history:
My first computer was an Atari ST with TOS 1.04 (Rainbow Tos)
This was later replaced with an Atari Falcon and upgraded with a
Centurbo CT2b board.
The famous "MintNET für Dummies" document introduced me to the world of
MiNT and Unix-style tools and commands. After that the SpareMiNT project
introduced me to the Redhat Package Manager (RPM) system.
When my Falcon - just like the Atari company - died it was a more logical
step for me to install Linux Redhat on my new computer, than to go for MS
Windows or Apple Mac.
After Redhat came Fedora, which is what I am still using. Never had a
Windows or Apple machine myself.
On my Linux machine I can still run my old Atari software thanks to Hatari
or STeem (especially MIDI software) and Aranym (FreeMiNT compatible
stuff). I even have the original harddisk from my old Atari Falcon, built
into a USB box, attached to my computer and mounted in Aranym. Works
Will people still be using Windows XP/7/8 software 30 years from now ?
