Atari had a chance to take the niche of computers for musicians with their built-in midi ports, but failed to follow through and provide up-to date technology. They provided one initial exciting complete product, then didn't support it or build on their initial success. They Apple was slower, had less memory, and was more cumbersome....but the value chain formed around them and as a result, our Atari computers became door-stops and 99% of musicians bought Apples/Macs.
