It is currently under development and is not ready for widespread use yet. So far the kernel is being written, and user-space utilities and applications will follow." ...amazing.

The nSpire series seem to be ARM9, so yeah - if it's possible to bodge the code on to them and they have an MMU, it should be entirely possible to run linux (or a BSD, or perhaps minix) on them.

edit:
Also, having now read a bit in your blog: That's really quite impressive. I like the "drag the parts I need out of random older UNIX and *BSD systems and reshape them"-approach. ;)
