I did that deliberately. That was the last nerd war I did not participate in.

The 8 bit Ataris were really ahead of their time because of their custom chipset. The designers of that chipset later went on to open up their own company and wanted to design a new chipset for a game console. The name of that console and the company was Amiga. Later they they were bought by Commodore and guess what they did with the chipset and the console. The Amiga was the direct successor of the 8 bit Ataris.

Before that, Commodore had more or less thrown out the CEO. He had to go and took along some of the guys who had developed the Commodore 64. He bought Atari and had his guys design a new 16 bit computer. The Atari ST really is the direct sucessor to the Commodore 64.

Not knowing that, the Atari nerds went to war with a Commodore, and the Commodore nerds fought with their Atari. It can't get any more absurd.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
