Free-BSD would be a good thing to have on the laptop. However, it would be nice to have a version like PC-BSD, where a lot of the stuff is preconfigured (since FreeBSD is supposedly quite difficult to set up)

PC-BSD is only x86 though.

I've done a tutorial for the "32bit" PowerPC/POWER Macs. I would need an actual model to make a GUI system.
The LiveCD could be made if one would make request to the FreeBSD PowerPC mailing list. The desktop would need to be blackbox or a similar small footprint window manager. Xorg would need to be setup according to the card: i.e. you will have to run "Xorg -configure -retro" until an official CD/USB is developed.

My personal ranking of OSes are:

1. Debian
2. Amigaish OSes (because of the relatively large userbase)
3. FreeBSD

Contact Nathan Whitehorn at nwhitehorn@freebsd.org .
This is his technical and not personal email.
We are compatriots in many manners.
Let him know the progress if the final product.
For reasin that he does advced research, the cost of a laptop
should be deferred.  Also, contact the United States Army Core of Engineers on twitter
with @USACEHQ . Add @Para_de_Aba to the message.
Link this thread to both the email for Nathan Whitehorn and the twitter post.
All of these people are for positive and positively progressive ideas and things.
