[MiNT] AW: release ?

A warm reboot does not clear all the memory, doesn't clear the BIOS and
doesn't clear the TTR's I think - doesn't clear the clock and buffered
battery, only reset the TOS. And a cold boot SHIFT-CTRL-ALT-DEL clears every
thing... Like switch off, and after seconds switch on again. 

Reset = reboot = warm boot = CTRL-ALT-DEL = reset button

Shut down = cold boot = SHIFT-CTRL-ALT-DEL = switch off button

This was the standard on every TOS-machine like ATARI ST 520, 1040, Falcon,
Hades etc., if I remember right, Milan I don't know. However it was a
significant different status on the ATARI ST.

Yes, I've never used anything else than MiNT on my Milan.

However, I'm not so sure if TOS behaves any differently. TOS also does a
complete restart with full initialization of the hardware regardless of how
I restart it.

Hehe! That's a minor pain comparing to have to wait 20 secs for the ATI BIOS
to run on my Milan ;)
