Morphos This page is dedicated to providing information on running Linux on the Pegasos. ISO images included. We would love to see a better Yellow Dog Linux support and also Darwin on Pegasos.

Huh? Who talked about Quartz? Have you any idea what Darwin is? Your Darwin would run on XFree my friend! All graphics drivers, all Gnomes and KDEs, are all already there "for free".

She is correct here, you argument about drivers does not hold. Because that community (the linux one that you say would provide better drivers for PPC) has already provided for graphics drivers in Xfree86. Xfree86 is where you will get your graphics drivers.

Plus Darwin is a very modular kernel, I do not know what sound card Genesi use in Pegasos. But if there is a linux driver you can easily modify it to work well with the modular Darwin kernel.

Just a question can you provide a link to the genesi website showing us the target market of Pegasos together with MorphOS.
