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 20 of 35ANN.lu
Posted by Anonymous on 05-Oct-2004 07:40 GMT
In reply to Comment 19 (Anonymous):
"Linux One"? That must have been long before it became obvious to everyone that the Amiga One simply can not run Linux in a satisfactory way. As you very well know, most Pegasos owners IN THIS community (there are others forming) is primarly interested in MorphOS, but I really can't see what the crime is in being interested in Linux as well (as a home server perhaps?), as well as the well being and future development of the Pegasos hardware platform?

Your desperation really shines through here, and I think its really sad to see you posting this way. Of course Genesi has to make money, without money everything will stop. And don't for a minute believe that the situation will be any different for Eyetech. They will need to start making real money too at some point, and they simply won't make all the money they need on OS4 based A1 sales alone. They will have to go the Linux route as well, and believe me, they would have done that a long time ago if there would have been a Linux route for them to go. But there isn't. IF they manage to get a special version of Yellow Dog running, hardcoded for all the "special features" of the A1, and decide to try make some real money to be able to develop new products, will you be here doing similar mocking posts then?
