in reply to My Favorite Holy War is:

Its probably a bit dated now, but one of my first (& favourtite) holy wars was the Amiga Versus the Atari ST. Of course, I had an Amiga, 'cause it kicked @ss! The only thing the Atari had going for it was a built-in midi interface. The Amiga though had more colors available AND 3 stereo channels as far as I remember. Brilliant machine!


N.B. my very first holy war was the ZX spectrum Versus commodore 64... kinda lost that one cause C64 turned out to be a bit better, still loved the old spectrum though!

    In my day it was PC vs. Amiga... and the Amiga did kick ass, although I would never have admitted it. I thought my Turbo XT (8mhz, 640K RAM, 30 meg disk, 16-color graphics) was the greatest. :)

    That and the fact that its CPU was clocked .7MHz higher :-). The number of colou?rs argument depended upon which ST you compared it to.

    Ah, memories. Yes, *sniff*, I was involved in those holy wars. Can you guess which side I was on? :-).

    It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of TV a day.
      Was it the losing side?? ;-)
      I still see some amigas around today, and they're still great little machines, you never heard of atari toasters creating the graphics for Babylon 5, or other movies. Good old Amiga did kick @tari @ss!!
