  1. Remember those arcade specs? They can also be used for Commodore to make their own UNIX workstation as a successor to Amiga UX. Just add a lot more RAM (32MB) and VRAM (4MB).
  2. Sorry for necroposting, but for an optional GPU, I would also add TMS34010 CPU/GPU for video. For extra sound, I'd also add a YM3812 to enhance the sound and Intel i8232 as a coprocessor to supplement the 65816 sound CPU.
  3. Btw there is no need to face-reveal yourself. I didn't force you upload it.
  4. It's fine. Beta-testing Windows OSes ain't exactly easy anyways.
  5. Then you ported C128-specific graphics to the C64 via REU expansion. No hate though, as REU retro gaming gave the C64 much needed extra gaming horsepower, as evidenced by Sonic on C64.
  6. So, we already have an UNIX-like OS for the X16 named Fuzix. Seems like a stupid question, but I wonder if it's possible to port the Linux kernel to the Commander X16 and would it be feasible to do so?
  7. My bad, accidentally quoted you. Was supposed to be for him. As I reiterate, XP was codenamed 'Whistler', Longhorn was for Vista, eventually at least.
  8. XP was codenamed 'Whistler' though, Longhorn was for Vista, eventually at least.
  9. Silly question, but would there be more alternative OSes for the X16?
  10. What if Commodore made Amiga portables and laptops before their bankruptcy, in a similar vein to their SX-64?
  11. Not sure if this is by default, I wonder if the SID chip is capable of perfectly (or at least very close to) replicating the distinct 4-bit triangle wave found in NES' 2a03
  12. And things get even worse as Russia starts an invasion on Ukraine, yet some people are still angry at David for a mistake that's repairable. Yeah, some people do need reality check.
  13. Perhaps 'Windows 98 Millennium Edition'.
  14. Your wish came true, Strider.
  15. I would honestly hesitate to remove real DOS mode, which has caused instabillity, as well as creating compatibility issues. I would also bring the Watercolor (or Watercolour; specifically the 2419 one) and Mallard/Sample Test Visual Style from Whistler. In addition, it would be nice to add the firewall, Activity Center, Fast Boot and the login screen from Neptune, add some notification system from PocketPC 2000, plus having quite a few of Plus! features (95, Kids and 98) built-in, finalising with adding Flight Simulator (moreover: Space and Train Simulators too), the entire Microsoft Entertainment Pack and perhaps an exclusive game for Windows ME as preincluded games for the OS. Security from Windows 2000 is also important, so I would make sure that would be added.
  16. What if Bill Gates put you and your development team at Microsoft at charge of Windows ME's development? Would you make sure not to rush Windows ME's development and keep adding new features that would lay the foundation of NT-based Windows XP? Or just give up with ME and keep developing NT-based Neptune by merging 9X and NT kernels, eventuality making an operating system very similar to XP?
  17. Mine would be similar, except that it would have a modern Intel Pentium processor instead (with an ARM and/or RISC-V coprocessor), plus an additional PSG capabilities for sound.
  18. 1. SID can already do pseudo-FM functions, due to the ring modulation and pass filters. 2. How would the hybrid YM2151/YM2610B-SID do in the market?
  19. Just wanna add: didn't BBC Micro support a second 6502 processor though?
  20. Just wanna add: didn't BBC Micro support a second 6502 processor though? (as an expansion option) EDIT: Oops, I accidentally published the same comment twice!
  21. Sorry for annoying you, but would the Yamaha's SID and the FM chips built upon it (YM2203-SID; YM2608-SID; YM2151-SID; YM2610(B)-SID or a hybrid YM2151/2610B-SID of the latter two) have any use in home computers, consoles, arcades, etc.? Would some of them even double the SID channels inside the FM chips for stereo?
  22. Well, duh. The YM2612 would be the same as it is in our timeline.
  23. Stupid question, but is there any way for an Apple I (one, not two) to enter the demoscene? After all, limitations breed creativity.
  24. Basically, we would have something like the YM2610(B) with SID implementation instead of AY-3-8910. Would it have any use in home computers, consoles, arcades, etc.?
