Re: Long Filenames

An one needs to format some partition with a file system that support long filenames (not DOS/TOS one, but minix or ext2 etc). And with a desktop (or console program) that supports long file names, one can then rename them. I think most fancier desktops should support long file names, but maybe eve...

Re: Noob hardware questions

To be honest if it loads from a standard satan disc as fast / faster than floppy then that is good enough for me No worry, Satandisk will be faster then floppy. I do not remember exactly, but Atari ST floppy had a read speed somewhere around 40 KB/s and Satandisk is a little above 100 KB/s, so it w...

That was it, no header in the file. I added the three lines and it works. There is another problem: I read that using \begin{equation} and \[ at the same time is not correct.

It was a developer machine, handed out by A. Goukassian to those who "gifted" Home or Lite version of their software to be included in the original Milan package.

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

And you would still benefit of having a userland below Hatari, for networking, or the filesystem. I would call that a disadvantage, not a benefit. The entire point of a baremetal port would be to let the "visible" OS (TOS/MiNT) be *the* OS, not an application under Linux. You don't need a...

I don't really think it's incomparable. For my purposes (interacting with external hardware, never using a VST plugin) TOS is strictly superior to Linux in every possible way. It's a dedicated single-purpose single-threaded real-time application, which is in my humble opinion the only tool for the ...
