Thought you might get a kick out of this:

Wouldn't it be nice if Apple helped us get NetBSD ported natively to the PPC
Macs, given how much they've availed themselves of our generosity? :-)
Zippy little boxes, these G3's. Mine's only a G3 266 with
512 K backside cache (running at 133 MHz), yet check it out:
ultra30:1:7 [/] # sysinfo |& egrep SUNW
SUNW,Ultra-30 is a "SUNW,501-3139"
cpu0 is a "296 MHz SUNW,UltraSPARC-II" CPU
ultra30:1:8 [/] # uname -a

(My Pentium 133 running NetBSD/i386 1.2.1 takes 55 seconds, FWIW. Yes I
realize this is unscientific as Hell, but heck, it's Fun (-: )
These cheap desktop G3's would make a realllly nice fast little NetBSD box ...
(yoo hoo, Apple ... )
