Any idea of the processor inside ? I know it's a Z8000 but there were 2 version After what I've heard :) One too simple not really useful :( One too complex and to buggy and finally useless :( No idea of what is true / false. Any dump of the roms ? Any memory map ? Any boot disk ? I think I still have some books on the Z8000. I indirectly discovered Unix and C with the commodore 900 :) I was supposed to work on this machine.. -- Didier -----Message d'origine----- De : firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] De la part de Uffe Jakobsen Envoyé : dimanche 11 décembre 2011 18:01 À : firstname.lastname@example.org Objet : Re: commodore 900 emulation ?

The product was killed by Commodore in the fight (with Amiga) for production capacity - which was not unlimited - unfortunately. But the CBM900 did get to the stage where it was pretty close to a product launch - it got its own casing looking quite similar to the one that A2000 later was shipped in. The remaining prototypes and the documentation actually disagrees at some points - so it is difficult to say what is the most correct. I only know of 4 prototypes units in the wild: Bo Zimmerman has two units - one workstation (hires) and one server (lowres) unit. They previously belonged to Claus Schönleber. Home Computer Museum has one unit - I do not know if it is a workstation or a server unit. And then there is the one (server unit) that we are currently restoring. As far as I know there our unit is the only one that is able to power up right now. PS: if anyone knows about more CBM 900 units and/or owners then please speak up. /Uffe Jakobsen Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-12-11 19:00:03
