    Some guys who bought off the rights to the Commodore brand name a few years back have released a new line of Intel PCs bearing the name and design of the old classic.

    The new "Commodore 64", which ships with Ubuntu Linux by default, will come in a range of specs, including one with a Blu-Ray drive (a good idea — since most people will probably want to use it as an under-the-TV computer, a media center PC is the most logical use for it).

    Personally, I don't care for the way they tweaked the keyboard (WEB, EMAIL, and FILES keys? What are you, Hewlett-Packard? ... and nice job removing two of the keys from the left side when it's cramped for space as it is) and the fact that it has old-style mouse and keyboard ports for some reason (um, why does it need a keyboard port? ... at all?), but it's good to see retro stuff like this can sell at what looks like a pretty reasonable price.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some of the software on their upcoming OS includes full C64OS emulation.
