What's a user? I'd say that's someone who use the Firebee for other
things than testing. I develop all my Atari software on an actual Atari.
Debugging is not very easy when a simple mistake can wipe out the entire
machine... For that reason I've basically stopped using my Firebee. My
Milan may have a slower CPU, but I get things done a lot faster when I
get a sensible error message instead of a locked up machine when I f**k
up my pointers ;)
