forward your question to the cbm-hackers mailing list.  [List members,

There are several Unix-like operating systems for the C64.  Some of them,
like ACE, are workalikes: trying to emulate the Unix shell, but featuring
e.g. no multitasking.  Others (LUnix, ACE) are technically more advanced
but may not have (m)any application programs.  LUnix and ACE have SLIP
support, and there was a ACE-based web server ( a few
years ago.  The address still exists, but packets destined there remain
bouncing between two routers.
