Linux on POWER Contest

IBM has launched another PowerPC porting contest. You can win Segways, G5s, and cash. I think the list of requested tier 2 and 3 ports is a bit ridiculous, it includes:

  • Shell scripts which need no porting at all
  • Stuff that already works on ppc32 and ppc64
  • Windows applications which will be quite hard to port
  • Wine, which won’t work without an x86 emulator (AFAIK some Windows programs already work with Wine and qemu)
