Archive-name: atari-8-bit/vendev Posting-Frequency: 60 days Last-modified: September 10, 1997 Welcome to the comp.sys.atari.8bit newsgroup! Atari 8-Bit Computers Vendors and Developers List "A comprehensive list of vendors, developers, publishers, and repair shops for Atari 8-bit computers and their users" Additions/suggestions/comments/corrections are needed! Please send to: Michael Current Please refer to the latest version of this FAQ list whenever possible! Available via these locations and Usenet FAQ archives everywhere: news:comp.sys.atari.8bit news:comp.answers news:news.answers Or you can always ask me for a copy at ------------------------------ Subject: Introduction Conventions ----------- All commercial vendors, developers, publishers, and repair shops should be listed here. "Major" PD/freeware/shareware developers should also be listed. Persons or entities holding rights to products, but not selling or supporting them in any way, are NOT listed here. "Vendor" = Reseller of products produced by others. Types of products sold are given in categories: new hardware, used hardware, PD/freeware/ shareware, (new) commercial software, used (commercial) software. "Developer" = Producer of products. Titles of products produced by the developer are listed. No product can be developed by more than one developer. No prices are given. "Publisher" = Publishes a print or disk magazine, or a book. Complete subscription or ordering information should be given, including prices. "Repair Shop" = Can repair many 8-bit Atari and related hardware devices. Be sure to make advance contact before sending anything to work on! Entries are presented alphabetically by company name, or publication title. If no company name exists, a personal name is used. "See" references indicate complete information may be found under the given heading. "See also" references indicate closely-related information may be found under the given heading. When writing to request catalogs, it's always a good idea to include a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope. When writing to foreign firms, try enclosing a couple of International Reply Coupons (IRC's) as well.
