Sinclair OS is a community driven Linux distribution for Sinclair enthusiasts that is designed to unleash your creative potential as well as enjoy your computing experience to the fullest. Sinclair computers were well known for their text based operating environments, so we seek to do the same, by providing a distinctive, ugly, primitive and frustrating operating system experience. Intended for pre-installation on all future Sinclair hardware, Sinclair OS comes pre-loaded with dozens of the latest and greatest productivity, creativity and education software the open source world has to offer. Featuring dozens of exciting games, the latest web browsing technology, a Microsoft Word compatible Office Suite, advanced graphical manipulation programs, 3D raytracing software, advanced software development tools and languages, photo and movie editing and sound and music composition programs, there is no task too big or too small for our new Sinclair computer to accomplish.Feeling nostalgic? Sinclair OS will provide functionality that will allow it to be classic Sinclair compatible, with integrated features to launch classic 8-bit era software via emulation easily. Games and demos for the Sinclair Spectrum, ZX80, ZX81 and QL can be launched effortlessly. No need to bother with cassette tapes or microdrives, as many games can be legally puchased and downloaded from the internet directly on to your computer.All the computers we sell come with a version of Ubuntu and Canonical can be contacted for software support since we don’t know how it works. Our machines are also capable of running Microsoft Windows (sold separately). Windows can be launched either from a multi boot menu at startup (installed by Sinclair OS), or seamlessly integrated within Sinclair OS itself. This flexibility allows you to easily access the strengths of each operating system installed on your new Sinclair machine.To create the authentic sinclair experience, Sinclair OS is based on Ubuntu with the graphical user interface removed and only the text console for input, we have also changed the colour scheme to black on white just like the old machines.Nearly all features mentioned above are what we eventually plan to have available in SinclairOS and may not be available in the currently released versions mainly due to us not knowing what we are doing and possibly not having the rights to use roms for the emulators but it’s still SinclairOS so shut up.See below for a video showing a beta version of our new Sinclair Brasso web browser that makes every web site look like it would on an original spectrum (it’s not real, we found it on youtube and liked the idea so decided to use it to make us look like we’re capable of doing useful things).
