in thread My first computer was...

Atari 1040ST rocks! A whole freakin' meg of memory for a sweet price. Graphics were great. The built in MIDI port was cool. I was damn near as productive with the GFA Compiled Basic as I am with Perl. Well, maybe productive is the wrong word, but it had the fun factor. Now if I can just find my boot disk...

    GFA Basic was certainly excellent, both compiler and interpreter, junked a lot of the bad things about basic, added in a handful of C-like and assembly options, even a reasonable IDE.

    I'm guessing the ST isn't on the list though because it was never very big in the US; the amiga was more popular, whereas in europe the ST was the hobbyists choice. It wasn't my first computer, but I've still got a 520STfm and a Mega STE.
