How Atari took on Apple with the Atari 400 and Atari 800 PCs

This is a great story about the Atari personal computers. I bought an Atari 800XL when I was in college and used it along with a VT-100 terminal emulator to write programs for my computer science classes in the late 80s. (Back then most of our programming was done on mainframes and we only really needed a terminal.) After being hired out of college I “upgraded” to an Atari 1040ST, which had a GUI similar to the Mac but cost much less. I will always think fondly of Atari due to its role in my early personal computer days.
