  1. FYI: This was posted on Reddit, emphasis mine: "Atari has said in the official Discord that users should not use 4k mode right now because it is causing OS corruption. Until an OS update is released they ask that you do not use my 4k mode."
  2. The last estimate that Atari gave for pre-order delivery was "late Spring", so probably June at the earliest:
  3. The person you were responding to only said that running Tempest 4000 under Atari's Debian Linux didn't require emulation, which is true. Nobody used the word "natively" except you, and I'm not even sure what that means in this context. If you mean you can't run something on the Microsoft Windows operating system without Microsoft Windows, that's obviously true. But programs do essentially run "natively" on the CPU in WINE as Windows is basically just an API.
  4. To run Windows applications under Linux, you typically use Wine (which is not an emulator btw) https://www.winehq.org/
  5. Apparently the VCS will not support internal M.2 SATA drives for Windows, you have to use external USB.
  6. A response somebody wrote to PDubs' comments on that thread:
  7. Atari's now saying that they won't have any VCS units to the general public until next year. On Reddit somebody who ordered the Atari VCS through Atari's website posted that they received the following email:
  8. Uh, are we going to get some better explanation as to why the other thread was closed 6 weeks before "it starts shipping"? Seems odd.
  9. What a surprise, turns out the kid on Twitter who's Atari Hotel mom allegedly got them an Atari VCS can't post any more about it.
  10. Eh, it's $150 for the case and motherboard with no CPU, RAM, or storage: https://www.newegg.com/asrock-deskmini-a300w/p/N82E16856158064
  11. Doesn't sound like we'll be seeing a real review of any of those 96 units any time soon. It's odd that during their last push this month to get in more pre-orders at the "early adopter prices" that they're not actually sending those 96 units to anybody except their own two PR people. Especially when all of Atari's social media is now filled with people questioning their ability to deliver.
  12. There's so much that nobody can keep up with it all: - The abandoned Asteroids Outpost: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-04-01-whats-going-on-in-asteroids-outpost https://steamcommunity.com/app/330210/discussions/ - Their attempts at launching gambling games in Kenya (which has been mentioned repeatedly in their company reports) where there is a gambling addiction crisis due to lack of regulation/enforcement:
