This much be a really old quote. Current GNU software runs on x86 PCs
(under both Linux and MS-Windows via cygwin) (x >= 3), PPCs (current
model Macs, esp. under Mac OSX), and just about any 32 or 64 bit UNIX
workstations and servers (Sparcs, Alphas, SGIs, HPs, IBM RS6000, etc.).
LW> I want to know what "macines in the 68000/16000 class" is.
Old (no longer made) Sun Workstations (eg Sun3s). Later model Mac IIs and
successors and Amigas also (68030 and later systems). NeXT workstations.
And some others.

I don't know if anyone makes a general purpose computer with either the
68K or 16K processors. You may find some VME SBCs, but these would be
meant for a rack mounted embedded system.
