THE MICRO USER
For Users Of The BBC B, B+, Master And Acorn Electron
Publisher: Database Publications
Active: 1982-1991
Frequency: Monthly
Archive Status: Complete


The Micro User (which began life as BBC Micro User) was an independent magazine for the BBC Micro, and was the equivalent companion magazine to the Beeb as Electron User was for the Electron. When Electron User finished its run, The Micro User assured Electron owners that there would be many further programs within its pages and, truth be told, it did not disappoint.

It ran for over eight years, going on to include Let's Compute! when it folded in 1991, and changing its name (to Acorn Computing) in order to reflect the changing market at Volume 10 No. 8. Many programs it published were designed only for the BBC Micro (and, later in time, BBC Master) but a great deal of them ran, unmodified, on the Acorn Electron. It is therefore a legitimate part of the Acorn Electron World archive.

Its main focus was games. Each early issue included a 'Game of the Month' in addition to the catalogue of type-in games, and each issue had its own companion cassette (or disc), all of which are available in the Micro User catalogue.

All of The Micro User magazines have been scanned but the resulting images are so large that they cannot be included on the single Acorn Electron World DVD. If you would like to purchase the magazines in scanned format, please visit the link to the DVD for more details.
