I was researching vintage joy sticks and found this interesting Picodore 64 from an ebay link. Just thought all you Commodore users would find this interesting.

Yes, it is cute. Since the company who now calls themselves Commodore, announced some netbooks and recently struck a deal with some other company about distribution in Asia and Africa, it would be interesting to see them manufacture a new round of DTVs, why not designed in a fashion similar to this one? However I understand there is practically no chance at all it will happen. We'll see if even those other products emerge on the market.

That is so cool looking!

However, I better not take it on as a project due to the fact that if I take on one more project, the wife will start a project...divorce proceedings!

But... he'll have far less money for those projects!

Unless there is a tragic "accident" involving a stack of vintage computers.......

It would be cool to have a Commodore Linux distro to run on those netbooks :)

Why not Commodore UNIX as once sold with some higher end Amigas?
