Actually, I'd have to say that the biggest problem right now is lack
of hardware in the hands of a competent hacker.  Although it wouldn't
hurt to have more docs, that isn't the big stumbling block right now.
OpenBSD/arc runs well on these machines, if you are looking for a
Unix-like OS.  Otheriwse, your best bet may be to donate/loan on of
these boards to a kernel hacker with time to make the port.
