    Who needs Android OS ah? Especially when society starts to break down. We need an OS that can be ran on minimum specs and be jerry rigged to pretty much any z80 based hardware.

    https://collapseos.org/roadmap.html

    Now I don't fully understand all this, but surely being able to run the OS on as little as 8k of rom and 56k of ram is pretty unique!!

    Remember you will have the edge over your neighbor with Collapse OS!

    Besides the funny side of this project, it's also a fun idea and would surely enjoy ripping stuff apart and trying to get this OS running on mad hardware!

    You'll still need electricity.

    If you are really planning on communications after the collapse I recommend getting some of these: [​IMG]

    Indeed indeed, but you can generate electricity without the need for power plants.

    I read about CollapseOS last week, and didn't know whether to laugh, cry, or something in between. It reminded me of a woman I saw on Hoarders once, whose entire multi-acre property was filled with...STUFF. String, and twist-ties, and bits of fabric and mechanical equipment. She was preparing for a post-apocalyptic world, where every scrap of ho-hum daily products would suddenly be in demand--and non-purchasable.

    Anyway, CollapseOS is one OS I won't be exploring--any time soon.
