Not useless but very limited, especially considering it cant use most of the software of the ST series it evolved from.

That could be said about most Amiga models then.

The Falcon is a fine machine, I don't see why the extreme bashing

No, there is new software coming out for the ST and Falcon. Such as Papyrus and Calamus.

I agree with Akira and Puzzle. The Atari Falcon is a very nice machine. Has its drawbacks but who said that Amiga doesn't have drawbacks too? As for the OS, it has a slight Win3.1 look but its not bad and it has some very neat applications!

Hi

I just bought one of those German Falcon's ... hopefully to arrive before Xmas...

So, if you would not mind would like some advice on setting it all up.

Found some sites to DL some software and it comes with some. Oh and 14Mb also!!!

There is a good site listing all the ST games which work and there are cracked versions which often do work like Dungeon Master.

Anyway, easy to contact me... "username"@hotmail.com

Thanks
Meth

Oh and for the Amiga lovers.. just bought an A3000/68060 and two A1200Ts (68060/66mhz and 68030/50mhz, both with Mediator setups!!) And didn't tell the wife how much!

I tried aranym in the past, and it seems in a state similar to the one of aros.

Not bad, but for tomorrow.
