yes, I can corroborate that.  Besides, Mike just mentioned buying out
Newell on c.s.a.8.  By purchasing Newell Industries, he gets to see how
Wes Newell did the 1088K upgrade and transfer that technology, with
improvements, into the Mars-8 design.  By purchasing the rights to the
OSNXl with Omnimon, Mike now legally has his own Atari operating system
clone, free and clear of Atari troubles, which he can modify to his
heart's content.  Grin!!
