Extremely good point Peter. I totally forgot about that fact :)
But will MiNT software run on all atari if advertized as MiNT software or
port. In the sense, that ok, take micq,  This is a MiNT port only. So it
should only matter to MiNT people. Coz if you put Atari MiNT, people might
want to try it under sting or whatever, expecting to work because it is an
atari program. No? well. We might have to keep advertizing as atari, but
maybe not as loud. More like:
 <b>MiNT</b> (atari). And not <b>ATARI</b> (MiNT)

(/b as in the html language, as I don't know how to bold in email ;)

MiNT Is Now TOS, let's move on, shall we?  /
