Title: Darwin
Post by: nemesis on December 22, 2014, 09:53:51 PM
A port of Darwin have not been discussed as far as I know. Darwin have from the beginning been PPC (correct me if I am wrong) and Open source (well...).

There are simple versions of Darwin and even versions with Gnome i doubt that anyone would put much energy into it but it would be cool to play around with if there would be a version for the Notebook.

I think any OS working on this notebook is good! However, Darwin, being licensed by Apple (even if it's public it is not GPL compatible), I don't think this system (by itself) will ever be as interesting as Linux or BSD in term of evolution and support.

I may be wrong though.

I totally agree that it will never be a very supported or very worked on system at all, but never the less it would be fun to play about with.

I agree with that! The more open, the better! :)

As long as I can boot FreeBSD and Ubuntu MATE 14.04 PPC Edition I'll be very happy.
