Linux has indeed much better filesystem than old, DOS, actually even preDOS - CPM based, 'drive' letter - actually partition letter based one. And that is Unix based. So, idea was even not from Linux developers - they just gave free alternative. So, basically, Android, and some others use free Linux...

Re: Test SW for YM sample playback, Hatari issues with ..

Hatari emulates it correct. I meant - and that was clear, because I said that tested on real HW - that it is Falcon design nonsense. Term 'bus emulation' was stupid always for me. We need emulation of STE glue chip, not bus emulation only . Then sound would be good. The whole case seems for me as so...

There is Atari partitioning support in Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 . I need to add here some things. I guess that I did not test it well enough years ago.
