Barry: the Cable guy – an fake Amigan background


Aside bussiness is also furniture

Style of website also indicates similarities with original CUSA website (the sketchy one)

Official bio
http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_Corporate.aspx
Barry S. Altman is the President and CEO of Commodore USA, LLC, B. Altman & Co. and Homecraft, LLC, all headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Spanning a 25 year career in the bleeding-edge electronics and satellite / space telecommunications industry, Mr. Altman founded and served as CEO & President of Cabletech Satellite Systems, Inc., U.S. Cable Technology, Inc., The Cabletech Satellite Network and United Broadcasting Co.

This group of companies have built cable television head ends for cable companies throughout the United States, and have designed and constructed the uplink network operation centers for such companies as Viacom International, Warner Amex, Viacom and MTV Networks.. They directed and produced the domestic satellite telemetry downlink for the Live Aid concert for MTV, which was at that time the largest world wide deployment of a live satellite television broadcast. Cabletech has designed and installed systems for Grumman Aerospace, The United Nations, government and private industry, and over 45,000 TVRO C& Ku band satellite systems for consumers nationwide. Cabletech was a developmental partner with General Motors & Hughes Communications in the small aperture DBS system that later became DirecTv.

And back to his past …

Great CommodoreOS support for their free Mint Beta


  • Commodore OS Vision is available for free download by the general public.
  • Commodore OS Vision is beta software under continual development and improvement.
  • There are no warranties whatsoever regarding its usage or applicability for any purpose.
  • The focus is entirely on the system working well on Commodore hardware and usage on other systems may vary.
  • Commodore OS Vision is 64-bit software only, to make the most of the latest technology.
  • Commodore classic ROMs are provided with our machines or purchased media only (coming soon).

And only purchasers of CUSA machine can even be beta testers officially, even everyone in fact is beta tester.

They plan to sell it and have just imagined CommodoreOS FUSION  …. no body knows what it is, another Tesla weapon

Btw, Mint 11 and Debian Wheezy can be installed on amigaOne boards and they are final and more advanced

We are pleased to make available to the entire world, Sinclair OS 2.0 Astigmatism (currently and always in beta, it’s an excuse for it not working right).Screenshots will be uploaded shortly.Astigmatism is an optical defect in which vision is blurred due to the inability of the optics of the eye to focus a point object into a sharp focused image on the retina., when downloaded burn the .iso file to a CD and boot, it’s easy.  the root password is sinclairuk, there is no password for the user account named fanboy.The software is supplied with no warranty and only supported (not really) on official SinclairUK hardware but you are free to try it out on any x86 compatible computer at your own risk.It really is a real bona fide working linux live cd created just for this site and can really be used, no install necessary.Click download and enter your email address to receive a link for the file (close the advert that opens, don’t worry, it’s safe)

Introducing Sinclair OS

Picture

Sinclair OS Beta booting.
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).
