NEWS..

If you would like to leave a comment or a idea then go to the forum.We would be happy to here it.You can contact me here on facebook too https://www.facebook.com/groups/commodoreos32bit/

Commodore OS 32 v1.5.17 (based on Linux Mint 17 “Qiana”) with Mate will be available soon.There will be a 32-bit version only and a pack so you can just install it over Linux Mint if you want but has to be the 32 bit version of the OS,I might make it so you can install it on a 64 bit OS.The 32-bit version will not have compiz installed,we are trying to make the iso as small as possible.more news near the time.

"COS 32bit was made so it would work on a Pentium 4 which is 32-bit processor..You can install it on a 64-Bit system as well and it works fine.You can even run 64-bit systems as VMs inside it."

Feeling nostalgic? Commodore OS 32-bit will provide emulators so you can play the Commodore 64 and Amiga games and programs. Games and demos for the Commodore PET, VIC-20, CBM-II, C16, C64, C128 and Commodore AMIGA can be run. No need to set them up they are done for you.

The 32 bit version was made because there was not a version available and I wanted it to work on my Pentium 4 PC.
It has Amiga SYS Workbench included,you will find it in the menu on the top left under Emulators.
C64 emulation in available too,Click on the C=64 icon on the bottom bar to run it.
VirtaulBox is not included.To install it click on Synaptic Package Manager and search for VirtaulBox in the search box and install it.I have made a script so it installs it when you click on "Update Commodore OS" but that will be available in the update.(You run the update and it installs all the programs is needs that will not fit on the disc.Good idea yeah..;) )

If you find a bug or anything you would like to tell us about post it in the forum section of the site.
Please no questions about Commodore USA we are not part or work for them,this is made for you so you can have it on a 32-bit system and I did it as a hobby,I wanted to learn what things did in Linux.

You can update the programs that come with Commodore OS with the Synaptic Package Manager.it on the Dock,so its easy to get too..
