I think it's time to reveal what this is all about. I am running
Slackware (Splack) on SPARC and have contributed some things
to Slackware on x86 and ARM (Armedslack).

And I am trying to get as much software to build on all targets
natively so they are all equal from an applications perspective
and it's easy to switch between them. I know of Debian and
Gentoo but prefer Slackware.

I may also acquire an Iyonix or other ARM system somewhere
in the future. So if I have the time and can provide a native
ARM tarball I certainly will do so. First I have to learn some
Linux and ARM programming though :-).
