Yes and no - we must remember that ST was designed in rush to not loose market when Atari lost Amiga technology.
Simplifying - Atari ST was like IBM PC clone but with MC68000 instead 8086.

Well - CPU frequency:
This sophisticated understanding can be lacking in some people with certain forms of brain damage, dementia and autism (although not always), and this perception has been located by MRI in the right parahippocampal gyrus.
Demo can be considered as general demonstration then anything can be a DEMOnstration but DEMO is DEMO and as such meaning is quite precise.

Well - luckily to me i have no problems with fact that Amiga is better than Atari ST (and that's why i have so many different Amiga's and no Atari ST).
