OpenBSD ready for Pegasos II too!

The OpenBSD distro for the Pegasos II will be ready for the 15 October release too. We should have that support site ready then too. Here it is: http://odc.pegasosppc.com

Sven, has pretty much covered the Linux vs. Darwin issues with you and while we do have two OpenDarwin folks ready to go forward with the port to the Pegasos (we need to get them machines for the next steps), we confess we do not know enough about what is happening in that community/environment to make a full and reasonable call on the whole issue.

As for Darwin as way to excite Mac users, we thought it more advantageous to take a Knoppix-like approach with a CD bootable MorphOS for Apple Computer Users. It is a bit cheaper for us and for the user less hassle. Without reconfiguring their hard drives they could take a test ride. We could also take the "Trojan Horse" approach and do this with MorphOS hidden under a CD bootable application/game (again on MorphOS) that then leads them to an online world, etc.

We should actually have the online game support site up next week too...:-) We started that whole discussion online some time ago and today it has been turned into a 16,000 word design document and a project on its way to a bright future. The discussion starts here:

We are open to just about any idea fused to diligent activity and we are willing to provide support, including a Pegasos to talented folks that can assist us in our pusuit of success for the platform. Thanks for the discussion and ideas.
