Since there's all this talk about porting linux to Amigas and maybe
Macintoshes eventually, I'd like to throw a new player into the
field: the PowerPC 601. Very likely, my next computer (whenever
that happens!) will be a PPC601 based machine. (that is, if the
PPC even works out) Personally, it looks to me as if the PPC 601
can put up a very significant struggle against the Pentium, based
on performance and, more importantly, cost. My question is, how
difficult would it be to port linux to the PPC architecture? How
many people would be interested in this?
(Go easy on me! I know NOTHING about the workings of the linux kernel,
nor the architecture of processors... I just sit around and sysadmin, honest!)
