Actually it's a HW issue and not a SW issue that most people stopped using  
Atari. The reason for me to switch to Linux. As an example, what monitor  
you use, if your Atari monitor should break? Only very old PC monitors are  
enough for usage with the Atari ST. The software and hardware developer  
scene in
Europe never lacked of being supported, neither the once who developed for  
as in beer, nor those who get payed. A lot of people hoped that after TT  
and Falcon
Atari would continue, especially the QL emulator users. The company Atari  
suffered from the well supporting scene. I for example never bought an  
Atari HDD
instead I used a LACOM SCSI controller, I'm using a non-Atari Floppy drive  
and my
520 ST has got 4 MiB PC RAM. DIY replacing the TOS etc. were naturally.  
I'm missing
such a huge and friendly community as there was for the Atari for Linux  

The biggest communities I ever experienced were the C64 and Atari ST HW  
and SW
scenes. The problem simply is that Commodore and Atari discontinued.
