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."
Well, the pegasos is an "amigasystem" which runs morphos, and you can also run Linux on it for whatever purpose morphos doesn't fit.
The amigaone on the other hand only run Linux, and was therefor an incredible expensive bad design piece of shit linux box. And the worst thing is that when AmigaOS actually runs on the hardware it's 2 years old or so, and 3 years to late.
If I bought a product like the amigaone i would be expecting to be able to run amigaos, and if it was delayed all the time i would blame the damn company and try to be compensated. To bad noone handles the stuff since it's all splitted. Who to blame? Amiga? Eyetech? Hyperion? No, not a single one of them.
