[20050114] NetBSD-ready PowerPC toys: KuroBox and LinkStation
Well, I haven't heard about that "KuroBox" before, but it seems to a rather cheap PowerPC based system that's sold as "NAS shell" that's built from 100% Open Source, and which seems to be identical to the LinkStation hardware (japanese page). It runs Linux by default, but apparently someone has already unearthed a NetBSD port based on NetBSD/sandpoint, too. This (japanese!) page has a bit more about NetBSD on that platform, including hardware, development environment and firmware (I wish my reading of Japanese was ways better, just a bit of Hiragana & Katakana isn't enough :/).

Anyone want to get me one of these gizmos for showing at roadshows?
