Linux is running pretty well on Amigas, even sometimes better than
NetBSD which is harder to configurate, IMHO.
I find strange that there is no port of NetBSD for '040 Macs, as
there are a lot of Quadra users and, IMHO again, it should be easier to
port an un*x to the Mac than to the Amiga, as this last uses co-processors
for nearly everything (display, sound, timers, etc...).

How good is Mach10. Oh, yes, this isn't the purpose of this ML, but
could you answer me by e-mail. Thanks.
