OSNews, Generic OSes "Punix is a Unix-like operating system for the Motorola M68000-based TI graphing calculators, starting with the TI-92+. 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.

Funny that you should mention your V200. I plan to support that and the TI-89 Titanium, in addition to the TI-89, because they're similar to the 92+.

On the other hand, the nSpire has completely different hardware, so I won't support any of those models. They're a lot more powerful and have more memory than the TI-9x series, so I suspect they could even run Linux if someone wanted to port it to them.

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. ;)

Is the ti-92 not supported due to ram constraints?

And now I need to get another 92+ (I should never have sold mine after college). This is awesome work, I wish you the best with it! ;)
