[SunRescue] FW: SparcLinux on Sun E10000

Yeah- I don't quite understand the fetish to get a linux kernel running on
anything that has anything remotely defined as a CPU. I applaud the effort
and ingenuity it takes to get a login prompt on anything from a toaster to a
Pilot to an E10K, but I sometimes ask myself "why?".

I guess I just have different fetishes.  .  .<grin>

All I can say is 'what a waste'.  If they had enough spare CPU time that
someone could port Linux, then they dont NEED an E10K... 8-)
