Took me a few minutes to find...
Lunix
[quote name='http://hld.c64.org/poldi/lunix/lunix.html']... is an experimental operating system for the Commodore64/128 without additional hardware. (The Commodore64 was one of the first home computers. It had around 64kB RAM and a 8Bit CPU running at 1MHz. If you're looking for a operating system for your PC take a look at linux) The features of LUnix are: UNIX-like environment and command shell, multitasking, multisession. LUnix is free software![/quote]

From the specs I'm thinking this must have been a very early version of Linux, more like a DOS version. Even then it must have run pretty slowly. Something you would want in your private computer museum, like my machine with an i486, actually an amd486dx-2 80 processor and win3.1. Works very well though and has lots of nice programs on it, used by a very computer savvy woman who got a lot out of it.
