Commodore is “back” and running linux

Commodore is back and running linux.

Commodore OS Vision is a community driven Linux distribution for Commodore enthusiasts that is designed to unleash your creative potential and help you enjoy your computing experience to the fullest. Commodore computers were well known for their unique operating environments, so we seek to do the same, by providing a distinctive, attractive, advanced and fun operating system experience. Its look is inspired by the Commodore 64 and original Commodore Amiga Workbench user environments but with a modern spin, which includes many slick graphical effects which showcase the capabilities of our new Commodore machines.

Interesting project and licensing deal for the name 🙂

  1. I’m an original Commodore 64 user and this is a PC inside of a case made to look like the Commodore 64. They’re not the same company. All they did was borrow the name through special licensing.

  2. Chuckt you are right about that. I owned both a C64 and Vic 20 (my very first computer it was all I could afford). Obviously this plays on people’s nostalgia for these computers. Not saying that is bad nor am I saying it won’t work. I’m just saying… 😉
