The Contiki Desktop OS:
“Contiki is an Internet-enabled operating system and desktop environment for the Commodore 64….. includes a multitasking kernel, a windowing system with themeable GUI toolkit, a screen saver, a TCP/IP stack, a simple Web server, a telnet client, and a Web browser….runs comfortably in 64 kilobytes of RAM”
Notice, that reads 64 kilobytes of RAM.
Other systems under development include “8-bit Nintendo Entertainment system, PCEngine, Gameboy, Atari 8-bit, Atari Jaguar, Atari Lynx, Apple ][, VIC-20, CBM PET, Plus/4, Tandy CoCo, Sharp Wizard, Casio PocketViewer, Sega DreamCast and the Sony Playstation.”
I don’t know whether to chuckle to myself or head over to the local antique computer store. I have to say that in the end I think this is pretty cool.
Update: Contiki is also mentioned this morning on /. Looks like I’d better get over to the store before all the C64s are gone.
Are you: 1) laughing 2) loving it 3) all the above?
