This is amazing. Just when you start to lose faith in human nature, someone comes along and does something like this.

I can't believe the recovered data was so error-free it compiled!
Atarian since 1989. Atari 1040STFM, 4MB 520STe with UltraSatan and Unitor N, A dodgy 1 MBSTe that bombs out after a few minutes, and a 14MB 48MHz Falcon 030 with NetUSBee and Soundpool 8 channel DAC. Plus my new MiST!

Yeah, I noticed that. Though I do find it funny that someone said NeoDesk was better than Windows 10 :)

It's not only better than Windows 10, but it beats Gnome out of the water!

Ha, I like Gnome. Itching to put Geneva / NeoDesk 4 on my Falcon. Though I've got to wonder what I need to do to get STiNG working, I'm assuming I won't be able to use MiNT-Net under it.

Heh... I used to read OSnews.

and now I remember why I stopped :)

Thom Holwerda: "People always scoff at IBM and Microsoft when it comes to PCs and DOS/Windows, but they did put a computer on every desk and in every home, at affordable prices"

when I read something like this I need to vomit 8O

- Commodore 64 make computers affordable and put it in every home, not PC.

Ha, yeah I thought the same. Well, more like "that crap wasn't affordable until way after the 16bit era where the A500 and Atari ST were more affordable and usable until about the early to mid 90s, when they went bankrupt. It wasn't until Windows 95 that MS even had an OS that wasn't completely terrible to use.

People these days like to whine that you have to use command line for things in Linux. Apparently they still associate that with the painful pile of crap that was DOS.

yes, to prove this, I open topic:

"Programs born on Atari, Amiga, Mac... and then ported to Windows" - to show that all programs was born on non-Microsoft platform and only later migrated to Windows.

That is awesome! Wish I could get Pagestream to work on my Falcon, may have to buy a license for Calamus SL 2005, though I wish they provided a cross-platform license. Probably will end up buying Pagestream for Linux soon anyhow

Sorry for going off topic, still eagerly awaiting Geneva / NeoDesk 4.

Also, out of curiosity, I know Teradesk has been open sourced for years, and it's still getting development on it. Are we hoping we can get some maintainer/developers updating Geneva / NeoDesk?

I always thought Geneva was pretty much just drop it into the auto folder, then configure up the desktop you want, right? It's not like MiNT / XaAES / $desktop, where you have to do it in a bunch of cnf/ini files. It has been since around '93-'94 since I really tried though.
