Computer Tinkerers Use Raspberry Pi to Resurrect Commodore 64

A group of Commodore computing enthusiasts are developing an emulator able to convert a Raspberry Pi system into a fully functioning Commodore 64. The goal is to create a native Commodore 64 operating system that can run on Raspberry Pi, complete with the ability to connect a joystick. Eventually, the developers want to add new features, including changing the emulation speed and new, modern graphics modes, to the system. The computer competed in the nascent personal computing market of the 1980s with the Apple II and was widely adopted based on its affordability. The project development is being carried out via GitHub. (SlashDot)(International Business Times)(Commodore Pi @ GitHub)
