I would like to order/buy an assembled Q68. Due to hand tremors, I can't solider. Please let me know who and when to pay and I will happily do so. Thanks!

Hi,

I have taken a note of interest in the Q68, I will add you to the waiting list and contact you when I can complete the order.

That makes me feel honored... Maybe I should again look into adding an MMU, so you can run something Unix-ish on it ;)

Are you only interested in Linux, or would NetBSD also be of interest? I had the idea to implement 68010 and Sun 2 MMU, as that is much simpler than one of the Motorola MMUs, and NetBSD supports it. One could probably just adapt the kernel and re-use a complete precompiled distribution.

uCLinux would also be cool... I was held back somewhat because it seems completely unmaintained and I didn't see a nice GUI for it.
(Also the virus scanner drove me crazy when I had the uCLinux binary distro on my Windoze machine.)

Being an Amiga and m68k nerd, my understanding is NetBSD 9.2 needs at least a 68030 and 68882 FPU to run?
