The major problem with both is that no one seems particularly interested in
getting them to work on most 68040 chips (not that this affects you).
Sorry for the sarcasm, I am just getting sick of waiting for someone to get
some sort of un*x working for my processor (68LC040 actually).  Anybody
know if anybody is working on it and when they might get something working?


"DOS Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq, Tandy, and
millions of others are by far the most popular, with about 70 million
machines in use wordwide. Macintosh fans, on the other hand, may note that
cockroaches are far more numerous than humans, and that numbers alone do
not denote a higher life form."
