Commodore 64 is BACK!

Icon 3 Comments
Commodore USA has released a modern replica of the classic Commodore 64 with state of the art internals!

Posted Image

It is being shipped with Ubuntu but is compatible with Windows if you choose. Its just a modern PC in a C64 shell. Although the plan seems to be to also provide a classic C64 emulator (although it seems that it is not done yet as there is a promise to ship when available).

This has of course been done (and not just with the C64) and there seems to be a certain set of hobbyist designers who have created Apple IIe replicas, Tandy TSR80 replicas etc. all with modern internals. It is nice to a see a classic released by the original company.

In honor of this event, I request that a "BASIC" category be added to the Programming Help menu.

Seconded!

Also, I can still remember finding an old Amiga 500+ in the attic when my family first move dinto our house back in 1990, I used to play on that thing for hours. I wish I knew what had happened to it :(
