|[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.

"And may also develop NEW hardware! :-)"
I feel sad for Genesi, to get costumers they need software, and the software has to run on some kind of hardware, so they make it.
But since the hardware lacks software not many people buy it. Sooner or later there exists a little more of software, but then the hardware is considered old so they need new one.
The problem of course is all of it costs money and without a modern cheap system with software it's hard to make any. I to would like to see a faster more modern system, but on the other hand I do understand they can't make new modells every third month because that would cost way more than they get.
Anyway, I really hope they make it.
