     systems, and home computers, especially during the 1970s and
     1980s.  Atari are best known for their range of 16- and 32-bit
     microcomputers, notable for having a built-in MIDI
     interface.  As of February 1994 the range included the Atari

     2001, Infogrames North America operations officially changed
