I love the retro vibes that the Raspberry Pi 400 gives off. The all-in-one computer-in-a-keyboard design makes me feel like I’m working with a computer from my childhood. The only problem I have is that when I look up from the keyboard, it’s just another modern(-ish) computer running Linux. I set out to fix that with the Pi64.
Inspired by the Commodore 64, the Pi64 boots into a C64-themed bash shell in text mode. No X Server is involved. It is not a C64 emulator, it is Raspberry Pi OS, so you can get real work done; it just extends the Pi 400’s retro feel to the screen.
