Software directory '89
If you have ever attended a computer trade show when Atari Corp. is in attendance, there is a good chance that you will have heard Atari's estimation of how many software products exist for the ST computer. The number seems to change from person to person, with estimates ranging from a few hundred to many thousands. Although Atari Corp. frequently advises software developers to send library copies of new products to Cindy Clavern, Atari's librarian and developer relations coordinator, it is really anyone's best guess to determine the number of products available to ST users.
For the past three years, Andy Nicola has maintained a list of ST software products. The latest release of the software list includes 2,000 entries of commercially and publicly available programs for the ST. The software list is updated as often as new products are brought to the attention of Nicola, sometimes as often as twice a week. The software list is purposefully kept off of CompuServe, DELPHI, GEnie and BIX, as Nicola does not believe the information should be sold. Instead, distribution of the list is limited mostly to public bulletin-board services.
"The list includes prices, availability dates, descriptions and review publication dates, and can be organized by category, publisher, or title."
