An overview of Atari Control Panels

The original Atari Control Panel was released as an accessory and would not allow separate modules for each task. Fortunately Atari did realize that it would be a good idea to allow the Control Panel to be able to load a module only when it is executed. With this solution you won´t have to lock up a lot of memory by keeping modules RAM-resident. Atari therefore released xControl, which was able to handle the new module format (CPX-files). Since then a couple of other Control Panels have been introduced (which all use the CPX-format) and they differ somewhat in looks and features. Take a look below and try to figure out which one you fancy!
