Commodore OS Vision Beta 6

Last night i was searching for a new Linux OS to install on my laptop and when i was looking on distrowatch i found the Commodore OS Vision. Commodore OS Vision is based on Linux Mint 10 (Ubuntu 10.10) and is still under development. It comes with GNOME 2 so all the desktop effects are there and installed by default… just watch the video!!

    Now having being used to and loving the commodore brand since I was a kid. This was one I wanted to have a ride with..

    There has no doubt been a lot of work and tweaking went into this..

    However, even with my heart in the C= brand, that blue theme is a bloody eye sore. And the speech synthesis just does not sound like the Amiga did! (it has its own Americanised accent altogether!)

    That said, this has obviously been built for the new commodore range of hardware. Well okay its just the name that’s been used upon some rather retro-sexual casing. The C64 and Vic-20 with some very potent hardware inside them, just like they were a million years ago!

    A side note, there IS brand-new Amiga hardware, which has the new Xena programmable cpu and some spectacular mathematics and schematics and oh god, I need a tissue…
