geosDS v1.0

The Commodore 64 (C64) was the hottest home computer in the 1980s with around 25 million units sold. It was, in fact, the best selling computer in the world before you know who came along. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that tons of software, both games and apps, were written for the system.

One of those apps is the Graphical Environment Operating System or GEOS, an operating system and graphical user interface for the C64 developed by Berkely Softworks.

The GEOS’ features included:

  • Cut-and-paste text, graphics, and other objects
  • Drag-and-drop file management such as copying, printing, and deleting
  • Support for numerous printers, input devices, and disk drives
  • Numerous point-and-click applications
  • An easy to use GUI interface
  • Support for memory expansion, process switching, and print spooling

Anyway, Andreas Varga has released a homebrew version of the GEOS for the DS. So if you’re old enough to feel nostalgic about GEOS or you’re a new fan of the program but don’t have the C64, geoDS v1.0 is here. To install the app, copy the “geos” directory in this package into the root directory of your Nintendo DS CF/SD card. Andreas has only tested geosDS v.10 on M3 with SD card, so performance may vary if you’re using other cards. For more info view the how-to demo video.
