This issue is a pull out in Atari User Issue 11


Welcome to the first issue of Atari ST User, a magazine dedicated to the most talked-about computer of the year.

When Atari boss Jack Tramiel launched the ST in Hanover just 11 months ago his rivals trembled. At one stroke he had transformed the image of Atari from that of an ailing games oriented company to one that had to be taken very seriously indeed.

So much so that his 16 bit machines are currently poised to dominate the business market and at the same time provide do-it-yourself programmers with the most challenging and versatile computers they have ever had their hands on.

Today some 1,500 companies around the world are producing products for the ST - that's the sort of excitement it has generated.

It is to better reflect the growing importance of the entire ST range that Atari ST User has been launched.
In the months to come this magazine will play a leading - and vital - role in chronicling the tremendous and far-reaching developments now being planned. If it concerns the ST you can be sure you'll be able to read all about it in Atari ST User.

So jump aboard. It's going to be an exciting stimulating ride.
