There is a new distro called 'Commodore OS' that appeared on Distrowatch:
Here is the website:
It's a hefty download though, 3.77 G on torrent (This is not including the 3.3 G torrent file that provides extras). Right now it's downloading at 1.50Mbs on my machine. It's based on Linux Mint and apparently comes with tons of software including a bunch of Commodore Emulators and programming IDE's...
Feeling nostalgic? A goal of Commodore OS Vision is to simplify classic Commodore compatibility, with integrated features to launch classic 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit era software via emulation. As Commodore OS Vision continues to develop, we will continue to improve this feature through updates, that further allow PET, VIC-20, CBM-II, C16, C64, C128 and Commodore AMIGA software to be launched effortlessly. The is no need to bother with floppy disks these days, as many games can be legally puchased and downloaded from the internet directly on to your computer. Commodore OS Vision even has an option to boot directly into full screen C64 emulation with the READY prompt.

Commodore OS Vision aims to provide the best programming tools for an array of programming languages, with options for beginners all they way up to IT professionals.
Several integrated development environments are included as Commodore OS Vision Extras allowing you to program in BASIC, Java, C/C++, PHP, Perl, VB.NET, C#, Python and HTML. There are also an array of web technologies and frameworks available.
An extensive list will be provided shortly, and this will grow through subsequent releases.
