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.

Oh and by the way, there's absolutely no jealousy involved, I'm just making fun of the Pegasos users, you know the ones who called the AmigaONE a LinuxONE and ending up with a Linux box themselves.
Oh no, how could I forget:
<PR mode on> We are targetting towards running as much Operating Systems on the Pegasos as possible <PR mode off>
translated with the bullsh.. erm PR filter on:
"We want to make money, so we have no other choice then to run as much Linux distro's on the Pegasos as possible, who's interested in that HobbyOS(tm) apart from some RS zealots anyway. The "interest" from the audience after showing some slides is pure politeness and americanism (this means: "cheering for everything").
Oh an every one is "interested" in AmigaOS4 too. But "interested" alone will not make you any money.
And about the mature part, if it's maturing as fast as a certain manager of a certain compagny then the "interest" will be faded away long before.
