Hello whoever you are :-)

I'm currently thinking on buying one of the new Mac PPC's, actually an 8100.
But I will only buy hardware, that let's me run a free unix on it, so:

Do you think on a port of netbsd to the ppc's? This would give us some cheap
and fast unix workstations (well, cheap...). I rad the README on, /pub/NetBSD_Mac. There, even the 040 port
doesn't exist and the install procedure is very obscure (A/UX, scsi data
needed, ram data needed). Is there any hope for this port with a maybe more
sophisticated install procedure? I don't want to criticize it, it's maybe
easy for a crack. I'm migrating from Linux (the well known PC unix variant),
which is now very stable and very good, it's install packages have very good
install scripts.

Thank you for any answer
