Just a small notice about the progress of things: Terrasoft now officially lists the "Freescale Semiconductor Pegasos II BSP" on their website, along with information about the contents of the Yellow Dog Linux Board Support Package for the Pegasos II.

Yellow Dog Linux Board Support Package
Launched by Motorola, Freescale Semiconductor has embraced the ATX PowerPC Genesi Pegasos II motherboard as an OEM CPU evaluation board. At Freescale's request, Terra Soft completed in October of 2004 the official Board Support Package, offering a simple means of installing Yellow Dog Linux for a variety of code development, desktop, and server functions

Yeah, competition is good, but it seems like Genesi is quite determined to push forward even without the competition of Eyetech though (which never had a competetive offer). Thinking about blade servers and other Pegasos Evolutions, I believe that Genesi is looking to be competetive to alternatives in the industry, *outside* this community.

Would OS4 users be interested in running their OS on a Pegasos III you think?

"Of course, with all the techies around, PPCNUX did not intend to pass up the chance to ask bplan about the future of Pegasos. As some might remember, there were plans for a G5 machine this year and bplan's appearance at german NBC GIGA TV where they presented Pegasos and announced a successor with updated features like Serial-ATA for autumn 2004. Good news for all the customers who ramained faithful - Pegasos III is not cancelled but will come with a different CPU. The close cooperation with Freescale made bplan choose the new SoC G4 with DDR2-667 support and PCI-Express to base their next-gen system on."
