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

In reply to Comment 6 (Anonymous):
Exactly. But those things (bigger possible market, a better and more popular product, product sales that aren't exclusively limited to simultaneous purchases of overpriced and outdated third party hardware products of dubious quality) would of course be in "their" interest as well. That is if "they" were a normal company.

This is an unusually weird situation. "Normally", customers and products might be screwed over if a company can make more money that way.
But here, both our (AmigaOS users) and their (Hyperion, as well as AInc/KMOS really) interests are pushed in the background. The current "business plan" is constructed on the vain hope or plain fantasy that hardware vendors would be interested in buying licences to sell AInc's/KMOS's software bundled with their hardware products. Mere interest from these vendors wouldn't be enough though, there would have to be sufficient interest and licensing income to outweigh the disadvantages with this nutty scheme: Smaller possible market and hardware base for AOS, more expensive hardware for AOS, restricted and reduced sales of AOS, AOS becoming a worse and less useful product by no fault of its own,... Well, you know all the usual bad things that come from doing bad things to your product and your customers, and then some.
