Emulation (Games)

Atari C&Ds Emulators, Site About Asteroids 155

An anonymous reader writes "Atari Inc. has launched another round of cease-and-desist letters targeted at what remains of its fan community. Having threatened homebrewers for the Atari 2600 and 8-bit systems, as well as emulator authors for mobile platforms like Android, they're now upping the ante by menacing Atari emulator authors on the Dreamcast and sites with Asteroids in the name (though in fairness, that site apparently once hosted a version of the Asteroids game). The working theory is that the company is planning a big push into the mobile market, and is trying to eliminate everything it believes could threaten its latest attempts at reviving the brand name. However, the emulators in question appear to have no copyrighted content from Atari, so it's unclear what exactly Atari believes the infringing material to be."

You are incorrect about having to install Win7 on a machine with only one harddrive. I installed it on a machine at work with 3 drives. The drive it was installed on was partitioned, and it's dual booting with XP. Don't make shit up to try to make yourself sound smart.
