after further thought i wondered what would a modern commodore be like,what os would it run what hardware would it use?
well my initial thoughts were all commodore custom,but that isn't strictly true.the rise of the pc (ibm comp) was already happening so commodore would have had to adapt and join the pc master race(got a lil sick with that thought).and with that in mind i'm starting a project.
i'm going to build a modern commodore, the Cx86, using the old bread bin c64 as the inspiration(middle one in the link above) going to do this cheap and dirty
since i have access to a fully stocked cabinet shop the case will be wood and that is where i'll start.this will be a one off project so don't get it twisted i'm not trying to bring commodore or anything and im sure some ppl wont like some of the thing im going do(hardware,design,and so on) but i wanna see at least my idea of a modern commodre on my desk

Have you ever researched the teensy? Thought this was pretty cool.

yeah i know id rather AROS but i don't know it and i'm not that good with linux.plus i have a win10 license just layin around and a copy window blinds,so at least it will look pretty.but this could change i've had my eye on amiga os 4.1,but have to see what it takes to run on a pc.

on another note if the pc version of the case goes well i'm gonna make one to house the c64 board i got collecting dust have to figure out an external keyboard though
