Commodore OS Vision is based on Linux Mint

Postby Zorba » Sat Mar 02, 2013 9:23 pm

Commodore OS Vision is a 64-bit Linux distribution, based on Linux Mint, created for Commodore enthusiasts purchasing Commodore USA hardware. These are essentially restore disks for pre-installed Commodore systems. Commodore OS Vision uses the classic GNOME 2 interface and features extensive Compiz/Emerald desktop effects. It includes dozens of games of all genres (FPS, Racing, Retro etc), the Firefox and Chromium web browsers, LibreOffice, Scribus, GIMP, Blender, OpenShot and Cinellera, advanced software development tools and languages, sound editing through Ardour and Audacity, and music composition programs such as the Linux MultiMedia Studio. It has a classic Commodore slant with a selection of applications reminiscent of their classic Amiga counterparts.

Moved to other distros forum. Commodore OS is a Linux distribution loosely based on Debian and on Linux Mint. Its latest release was done in July 2012 (according to DistroWatch), though it is based on Linux Mint 10 which was obsoleted in April 2012 :|

There have been a few users here on the forums looking for help with Commodore OS, as I think the Commodore forums have been down for a while leaving its users without any means of getting help. Generally those users get recommended to install a supported version of Linux Mint first.

It's not really a showcase for Linux Mint in my opinion.
