If no, why the rants?
To all the Naysayers. Screw you. :D I mean that in a nice way. A 68060 based system with a Mediator and Radeon card should be able to run Debian quite nicely.
It's nice to see m68k in Sid now. Interesting to see the architectures that Wheezy supports versus what is in Sid.

As you can see, Wheezy is adding 'armhf' and 's390x' to it from Squeeze, though both of them are just variations on other architectures (armel with hard floating points.) And whatever S390x is. Sid supports quite a few more. Very nice.
m68k processors are quite nice, and putting support back for it is more than just 'old hardware'. Think of the embedded space where the Coldfire processors are still used.
...two days ago I moved my Amigas to attic, which really hurt me badly. And now reading news like that one I know how bad that decision was.
People who are still working on that stuff are my personal heroes :]
Great work, keep going with that! :]
