I have a 3/60 ("moonbeam") that I'm typically pretty active with, but
it's off right now and in a storage unit (flooding in the basement...
long story). For awhile, it was my work machine at a startup where
everyone was using NetBSD as their primary desktops. While everyone else
had pretty fast x86 boxes, I was rocking my 3/60. I still have my
desktop image from '01, and you're absolutely right ; NetBSD 1.6 is
considerably faster... but, I think we all understand why. When I get it
back and start using it again, I'm debating what i want to do with it
this time around and what OS to run on it. I'm debating doing
NetBSD-current and working with some of the devs to try to get some of
the m68k routines a bit more speedy.
Great work on the 3/80 though. I've wanted one of those for a long while
