 AEX - TT Design Overview
Atari had obviously put a lot of time and money into the TT, it had been the culmination of over 4 years work by Atari engineers.
The name of the Atari ST derives from the nature of its microprocessor, the 68000 -- a so-called "sixteen/thirty-two bit" processor (hence "ST"), by virtue of its 16-bit-wide data bus and 32-bit-wide internal registers.
As time went on, however, Atari realized that the 68020 was not an ideal stopping-point for the TT technology it was developing.

 What is TOS?
TOS itself originated from the landmark CP/M operating system -- created by Gary Kildall who would later form Digital Research -- by modifying CP/M68, a version for the Motorola 68000 processor which Atari was to use in its new 16-bit computer.
Atari's use of GEM, however, was not restricted by these early legal wranglings.
Atari's high-end workstation, the TT, first released in 1990 utilizing the Motorola 68030 processor found in the most expensive Macs of the time.

 Atari TOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Operating System (TOS) was the operating system of the Atari ST range of computers.
The Atari GEMDOS comprise the highest level in TOS, while low level tasks are handed over to the BIOS as well as the XBIOS.
TOS was a single tasking operating system, in essence limiting the user to run only one application at a time.

 Atari TOS 1.0
TOS is the operating system designed for the Atari ST and TT series of computers.
The Atari ST and TT use a Motorola 68k based CPU (The same CPU used by early Macintoshes) and was first manufactured in 1985.
None of the versions of GEM for Atari TOS were affected by the Apple lawsuit so all of the Atari versions retained these features.

 Atari 520ST computer
The Atari 520ST was introduced at the Winter CES in January of 1985, 6 months before the Commodore Amiga.
Atari did take some shortcuts, though, as the Operating System did not yet exist in ROM, and had to be loaded from floppy-disk when powered on (but then again, so did the Amiga).
There was a huge rivalry between Amiga and Atari users, each positive that their computer system was superior, or at least hoping it was.

While I certainly don't claim to be an Atari historian by any means, I have used Atari computers since the early eighties, and while not an expert, I am familiar with most of the models Atari produced, and have a great deal of personal experience with many of them as well.
The Atari ST became almost synonymous with MIDI and could be found in many major recording studios and on stages around the world.
Atari's final computer was released around 1993, and it was quite a bit different than it's predecessors.

 Atari Falcon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Falcon's performance was not as great as it could have been, mostly due to Atari's decision to put the 32-bit 68030 microprocessor on a 16-bit data bus.
Apple Computer was widely criticised for making the same kind of decision with their Macintosh LC computer, although this was done to prevent sales of this low-end computer from cutting into the sales of the more expensive Macs.
Apparently, Atari created a number of prototypes of the Falcon040 (based on the more capable deep-pipeline, FPU-including, Motorola 68040, and using a "microbox" case), but cancelled it in order to focus developers on the Atari Jaguar.

 Tosbox   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-24)
Several high-resolution video modes that were not native to the Atari hardware are implemented, along with the standard ST modes which are included for compatibility.
Before you can run Tosbox, you need to have an Atari TOS operating system image, which is typically a 192k or 256k file copied from the original Atari ROMs.
The emulator package comes with a utility that helps you create such an image on a floppy if you already own an Atari ST. Images are also available widely (and I think illegally) around the 'net, but I'll leave it up to you to hunt those down if you want to do that.

That the future of TOS platform is not in developing small series of over-priced accelerators or completely new hardware that often has nearly nothing in common with the original TOS machines from Atari.
Then there are hard-core Atari users and demo-makers that spend money for accelerators and other add-ons to their Falcons but in the end, for regular daily work they often use PC with Windows.

 The Linux Game Tome
The Atari ST was a 16/32 bit computer system which was first released by Atari in 1985.
Unlike many other Atari ST emulators which try to give you a good environment for running GEM applications, Hatari tries to emulate the hardware of a ST as close as possible so that it is able to run most of the old ST games and demos.
Many older games are very picky about the TOS version with which they work, so there are only a few games and demos which work with EmuTOS, but for people who don't have an old Atari in their closets, at least something works with it.

 myatari.net : The Age of Emulation
Whilst some users have kept their Atari machines, many others have not been so fortunate due to lack of funds - or more importantly - desk space.
Atari employed the use of ROM chips on the ST and Falcon030's to store TOS (The Operating System), so without a copy, your emulation software is quite useless.
The final setup stage is to define the properties of the Atari you wish GEMulator to emulate.
