|[Web] Pegasos, Freescale & Gentoo

In this interview Gentoo developer, Pieter Van den Abeele mentions PegasosPPC. But I bet there's few people who will say: there's no connection between Genesi and Freescale. ;-)
Our mindshare is definitely growing leaps. Just recently we gained a lot of mindshare by making all our PowerPC products natively compatible with Pegasos PowerPC Systems.
Freescale semiconductor, (a subsidiary of Motorola Inc.) has donated ten Open Desktop Workstations to this cause. Gentoo is obviously quite popular on these machines because our product, unlike other Linux distributions, just works on them.

|@all Linux bashers:
Linux is great. You can't compare AmigaOS x.x or MorphOS
with it. And without Linux, at the moment there would not
be much development on Amiga compatibles at all. Most
of the big projects are cross compiled on linux boxes.
AROS started it's life on top of linux and I bet,
a complete build of OS4 also works best under Linux.
Maybe it's not your favourite desktop OS, but it
definately is the best development environment around
at the moment. Even for Amiga binaries.
And of course it makes sense, to sell linux boxes.
This is s chance to extend (well, better create) a
market. I would never buy such a machine, if I could
not run a second OS on it, which will be supported
longer, than the current company owning the rights
of the OS exists.
