I don't see any harm in discussing it, not like anything else is happening 
except waiting.

Keep in mind for the very small userbase involved in riscy that we
must have a unified effort to get ANYTHING running. 

For us to have a reasonable chance of success we must first get whatever
is easiest/fastest etc ported.  Then worry about alternatives.

>From people who have spent much more time inside kernels and device
drivers say that linux would be the easiest/fastest and thats good enough
for me.

I personally find that strange since I believe bsd already runs on a few
mips machines, but can accept that, besides linux is a cool unix.

Linux is great.         Bike to live, live to bike.                      PGP-ok
