Has anyone got a Colour Maximite 2? It's not exactly a retro computer,[...]
but more a modern computer for retro enthusiasts.
Anyway, I bought a colour maximite 2, but it was expensive. About $200
AU. I got a good deal. Anyway, it got me thinking... arm CPU, boot to basic... what about a raspberry pi zero that had a custom OS that booted straight to BASIC...
A raspberry pi zero (without wireless) is about $10 here. The OS would be on the SD-card, and read files from FAT, it's got the header...
So I started writing an OS for raspberry pi. My goal is to use
paladin-t's my-basic as the basic interpreter, so I need to write an os, with a fat filesystem driver and enough of a lib-c to run my-basic, then the fun can start and add functions to do graphics etc, via the framebuffer.
Will I ever get there? Who knows... is anyone interested in such a thing? (Besides me?)
I think people are mostly interested in the original experience and memories: C64, Amiga, Atari, MSX, ...
Would it be possible to port the colour maximite 2 OS to the raspberry instead of creating another OS without software and a community (in
But back to the OS for the raspberry zero: would it run on the zero
only or on the bigger Pis too? Or maybe run it in QEMU and put it
online for everyone to try :).
