Do we not speak of "Vice" on here or something?
VICE is a 64 emulator, that, as far as I've seen beats everything else I've seen (which isn't much).
I haven't seen any difference running software on vice vs the real thing...
point is, couldnt vice be used on some sort of embedded system, or would the cost be too high?

> There were two C64 based products from two different companies that used the same ASIC. So I don't think the companies own the intellectual property rights on the chip.. They have the rights to their products.
> Rumor is that Mammoth ordered many ASICs that were never used. To bad those couldn't be released to the public for people to make their own stuff.
> Also there are browsers and telnet apps for the C64
> Web browsers for the C64
> Singular Browser
> Ethernet hardware/software for the C64
> I just think that this would be a quicker solution.
> Or everyone can donate their C64s, but I doubt the power supplies will survive.
