    Linux on a VIC-20?


    Allright, this is going to sound real crazy but I have to ask. I've got a freind who has an old VIC-20. Yeah. Old. So he said to me the other day something about betting I couldn't find some linux distro, even regardless of age, that could run on it. Well, I figure he is probably right on the mark, but I had to ask the forum. At the very least you get a good laugh. heh. Let me know if you have any ideas! Thanks, Hawk.

    yeah, I've heard that linux is capable of running in "extreme conditions". Not sure how true it is but I've heard or read somewhere that there are some linux based washing-machine (ie it uses a stripped and modified linux kernel and special written apps). Also, there's the Z80 CPU's which is present in some calculators (like mine TI83 Plus SE), and I think there's a linux based OS I could download an put on it, haven't tried it but it would be fun to do that some day
