At last someone bringing NetBSD to the Freerunner!  I've been waiting 
for the day when I can point to my phone and casually say "Of course it 
runs NetBSD ...".  Thank you!

I'm only a tinkerer myself, but some years ago I enjoyed getting NetBSD 
running on an old Blue & White Mac G3. I was really impressed by the 
enthusiasm and helpfulness of the NetBSD community, and by their mission 
to make it run on every possible hardware, down to toasters if possible. 
It always seemed to me that the Freerunner would make a great project 
(if I only had the time and the skill). So I'm really happy to see what 
you're doing.

One question now - what about the GTA04?  Looking at NetBSD development, 
it seems that people are already working on ports to current OMAP and 
BeagleBoard type hardware.  Does this mean that a port to the GTA04 
would be relatively straightforward?  Or is this too good to be true?

Thanks again for letting us know what you're doing,

Nick Sheppard
