I expect SinclairOS have to be typed in line by line at every boot of the machine, or else it's not a true 8 bit retro-experience.

We did look into this but with the millions of lines of code required for a modern operating system it would have taken 13 monkeys 3 years to type in all the code so we decided that just shipping the OS as source code would be a much easier way of getting it into the machine, it saves us the cost of supplying monkeys with every copy and saves a bit of time too.  We do allow the user to save a completed copy of sinclairOS to disc but if a user would prefer to build their copy of sinclairOS from scratch each time they boot they are free to do this too.

Oi! You embedded my Image to ZX Spec Proxy video on the about page! http://sinclair-uk.weebly.com/sinclair-os.html

The proxy is running in Firefox with my Gran Canaria persona as the titlebar image, not as you purport the Sinclair Brasso browser.

Check the youtube user name against amiga.org member name for confirmation.

I'm PMing you to sue for copyright infringement, patent abuse and libel damages. You will be hearing from my solicitor shortly.

We have released SinclairOS Pink Eye for download, it is available to everybody but we can only recommend it for sinclair computers because if we didn't there would be no reason to buy one so we may find some way to break it on non sinclair computers in the future. It turns out that the released version of SinclairOS is nothing like we said it would be, those were all just pipe dreams but it's still an OS and still has the sinclair name so even though you could just use some other OS based on the same code it would not be SinclairOS. If I can, I will put together a very amateurish video to promote SinclairOS, I may use MS Paint or if I can figure out how, ill render some text poorly so it looks like it was done in the early 90s, use some stock photos of sinclair computers from the past with some fancy zooming effects and fades that I can find in iMovie. Why should a big rich company with £3 million advertising budget pay a pro to do this stuff when I can probably do it myself?

A few hours ago I tried a linux distro by an american company that thinks it can do better than SinclairUK so I have decided to release SinclairOS 2.0 Astigmatism.

SinclairOS 2.0 Astigmatism is a ready to run Linux distribution specially tailored for the Sinclair customer but should run on any x86 PC, just download the .iso (bittorrent client required) burn it to a cd and boot it.  Best of all, it's only about 500mb.

SinclairOS download page


edit:  I have just been informed by the developers that it can even run in virtualbox or vmware so you won't even have to burn a CD or shut down your computer to try it.


Hopefully a direct download will be available soon for those not wanting to use bittorrent.

I can't decide now whether to go for the new Commodore or wait for the Sinclair.  I hate choice!
