Interview with Prodatron

Interview with Prodatron

Topic: MSX Related

Everybody who's been around in the MSX scene since now and over a decade ago knows him: Prodatron. He scared his friends quite severely when he told them he was going to make a Windows for 8 bit computers. Later he shook the whole 8 bit world that he actually did it.

A lot has changed since then, but Prodatron was here to stay. Good for us. He's been demonstrating his OS during the Nijmegen fairs more than once with his typical setup showcasing more than just our MSX system, all running the same software. SymbOS kept on growing and became more mature. SymbOS enthousiast EdoZ developed and released quite a catalogue of programs and games for it and it just never stopped. Hopefully it never will until it really is finished. And don't we all know that Microsoft never managed to finish their Windows?

Spanish website Distrito Entebras interviewed the German. Published in English it can be read here.
