There is some work for several systems in progress, but nothing that's
at a stage where anyone wants to point to it... ;-)
The PowerPC Platform (PPCP/CHRP) looks quite interesting.
Unfortunately, the only hardware that I personally have
is a PowerMac 8500 so that's what I'm working on.
If you would buy a Mac if you could run NetBSD on it,
please take a look at
We're trying to send a message to Apple that there is a market for a
free OS running on their hardware in the hopes that they might actually
give us some support.
