a strange idea / request from an old C64 fan

This forum was the place to post questions about "New Commodore" USA PC's like the Pheonix, Invictus and Amigo but given their demise, we are expanding to include the 2015 incarnation of Commodore which includes internet access, smart phones and more.

Why not rig up a PC with DirectX and extend C64 emulation to take advantage of PC resources such as network, more colors & memory and such? That way an person can use the api to develop new things that take advantage of the PC resources while using a C64 interface and code. (like making a monster out of a 6510 proc and VIC chips)

This sounds great to me but it is beyond my coding abilities.

Let me know when you have it done :)

Maybe because that wouldn't be a C64 anymore...If you could access to PC resources from a "C64 point of view", you were actually creating a programming language...
