Retro OS?

Sat Apr 21, 2018 2:41 pm

Hi, just wondering, has anyone written an OS similar to the likes of Windows 3.1? :?:

Can an older version of Android be installed on a Pi? :?:
Not very good with a Rasp Pi.

Android has its own community support forum:

If you want to go back in time then RiscOS:

Thats ok, I've only got an RP1.
I might give the Win 3.1 a go.
Looks interesting.

I think OpenGEM's x86 only.

There are a couple of projects to boot straight into Amiga OS via (some version of) UAE. I think Amibian is one of them. You may have to dig a bit to find ones for a non 3B/3B+ board, as the developers seem to be obsessed with running on the most recent hardware versions.
