Interesting. Is this thing for real?

Looks like it. Price is a bit steep considering it's a newer netbook (albeit with 1080p capability), but it's certainly enough to run a BBS on and emulate the Commodore classics.

It's not even a notebook. It does not come with a screen.

Commodore is calling it a Nettop.

Anyone check out ReacOS? It's supposed to be direct replacement for Windows 32 bit that is free.

ReactOS isn't anywhere near done.

I wonder how much trouble ReadtOS is with MS. But if it's usable past the time that the true 32/16 bit Windows is no longer available then it's a good thing.

I used to be a pretty hotshot programmer on the original C=64 :geek: ; programming it in 6510 assembly language -- I wonder if this new C=64 supports all of the old CPU's opcodes and if the VIC II and SID chips are supported at the hardware level too. :?:

Looks like it's running Commodore's custom Linux distribution called Commodore OS Vision. I wonder if there's any way to procure a copy of their distro and install it on some x86 hardware to see just what all it supports?
