at the time you had more storage using DOS 3 over 2 unless you had a US doubler drive....

people often run calculations using 720 sectors in their calcs to say how bad the DOS was or wasted... They needed to used the 1040 something number instead....

so while it wasn't the Greatest, it was GOOD at the time. Other complaints at the time were against command line DOS as well, people kept wanting 2.0 even thought OSS DOS variants were all leaps and bounds better....    have fun, if you do some digging there were all kinds of heated debates about this stuff back in the days and sprinkled thru Atari Age.... remember to do advance searches and turn the date range all the way back.

I heard from Steve at Atarimax this morning. He said the items I ordered had been shipped. Just wanted to let everyone know.

Thank you to everyone for your help.
