To be honest, you had it coming. It was an interesting read. I chose Amiga over Atari, and never regretted this decision. Although, I think Falcon is better than A1200 in HW, it seriously lacks in SW department and I am not talking only about games. And it is the software that makes people buy the hardware.
I never understood why Atari didn't attract more software developers. I know they were against 3rd party developers from the very beginning but their 8-bit machines (XL/XE) were superior to their competition and yet Atari library is weak in comparison to Spectrum, C64, Amstrad, even Apple II. Also, the ST series had a great start, then it felt as if software development just died in early 90s, even though by that time STe almost caught Amiga in HW.
