Well, I think that this will remain primarily Atari oriented. Don't see why Amiga should be equated - sorry Amiga developers and lovers, I don't mean with this that it is something lower worth or like - we just can not change fact that exxos and most of others here have longer or shorter Atari experience and some results, products published.
And yes, there may appear some other oldies too, so I really don't see that should add other computer names in slogan, unless it wants to be longer .
Actually, there is lot of common with oldies. For instance adding IDE adapter is very similar. Display problems are very common too, and so on.

It is nice to support some Atari-Amiga cowork, especially after all silly fights around, but I don't see why not same with other platform developers, enthusiasts. If point is in same CPU used, then it should include Motorola CPU or something like. But I don't think that it's good idea too.
And don't rush with it. Making some new slogan, what will be outdated in half year, or year is really not good thing.
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.

"Loving Jack's extended family of computers since 1992."?

After all, Jack Tramiel was at Commodore then went to Atari. The Amiga sort of started as an Atari project but moved to Commodore.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

Perhaps an ASCII representation of a handshake. One side with Atari, the other side with Amiga...

It's been 35 years. (and yes I have had a blood nose over it when I was 10) This playground war needs to end. :)

At this point we could have this slogan : War and Piece (typo is on purpose, instead of peace ).
Working ones : MegaSTE (68020) / TT030 / Falcon with AB040 & Eclipse / 1040STF
Need testing : Falcon with CT2
