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. ;-) Article quote: 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.

Pegasos, Freescale & Gentoo : Comment 17 of 35ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 15 (o1i):
"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."

Yeah, having some well established and well supported OS to fall back upon is a good thing (tm). It only brings additional value to the hardware platform. It makes it possible to use the hardware in lots of additional ways. It also brings safety to a prospective buyer in a way that "well if everything goes wrong with that OS - I will at least always have this". I completely fail to see how this could possibly be a bad thing at all, it's a GREAT thing!
