Title: Windows 10 on a commodore PET
Post by: Techboy on 02:55, 29 August 19
WHat would happen if Microsoft went back in time and made Windows 10 for the 4k commodore PET?


Serious question, can you fit windows 10 into a 4k or 8k rom? :laugh:

Can you run a 4gb os that need 1gb of ram to boot on a 4k 80's machine?

Sure you can!... in fact you can buy it right now!... just jump on your unicorn, and fly to the magic dream shop to buy your copy in exchange for magic beans!

Seriously, what are you even asking here?

Not Windows 10 as it really is, for the reasons mentioned and then some more.


But you could do something like SymbOS, but with a Windows 10 look.

did not see that  :laugh:


and the question is genuine. could you port part of the windows OS (or a subset of windows) to a commodore Pet  that has maxed out memory?


would be nice to see
