As you probably have guessed now by looking at the previous post
that the MacMint list is altmacos@tazboy.JPL.NASA.GOV
There is some high spirits and people putting up to get things done
but a general lack of experience. Again I may be out of line here and my
other posts, if I am I'm sorry. I'm not trying to say any of these are better
than MacBSD, I'm saying that there are ways to run some form of unix on
all macs, 040, 030, and even without an fpu which is what I think a lot of
people on this list are looking for.
Also I think we can all help each other out.
I don't know what NED is in respect to connectix, and I think you're
right that Apple won't let us EVER have source to A/UX:( The FX motherboard
upgrade still costs over 2 grand doesn't it?!? Apple is stubborn. On the
other hand the people who made "Executor" went into a clean room to disect
the Macintosh ROMs so they could make Sys 6 run on a PC, they might well
have some information we could use.
