Mostly dead. I was originally pursuing a hardware platform
for the OS based on something not quite so brain-damaged as
Intel. Hopefully a multiprocessor Motorola based system, but
more likely something based on either the StrongArm or IDT
The reality is that current PC platforms are too cheap to make
a custom solution worthwhile unless some real performance wins
can be demonstrated. (Hey Kragen, how about a Beowulf-in-a-box
As always, the real-world with real-world time constraints intrudes
and I have abandoned it for the time being.
I would still like to see an Open Hardware project take place.
However; that is very off-topic.
