NetBSD on the Raspberry Pi (cambus.net)

NetBSD is one thing, but I still can't get over running http://www.raspberrypi.org/risc-os-for-raspberry-pi/

Having grown up with those machines suddenly finding a tiny board that costs $30 which runs this better than any of the desktops ever did . . . mind blowing.

As an American I'd never even heard of these things except through internet exploration, but I was always particularly fascinated with RISCOS once I did; even ran ROX briefly. I've been tempted to get a Pi just to try the real deal.

FYI, the Plan9Front raspberry pi image is also surprisingly useful if you want a fast-booting graphical terminal (I use it to VNC and SSH to normal boxes):
