What is Linux/m68k?

Linux/m68k is the port of the Linux operating system to run on systems using Motorola's 68020, 68030, 68040 and 68060 microprocessors. Linux/m68k, like other Linux ports, is source compatible with Linux on other platforms. Current releases of the m68k kernel are stable on the Amiga, Atari, many Apple Macintosh models, and several VMEbus single-board computers from BVM, Motorola and Tadpole. In addition, ports are underway (with varying levels of progress) to the HP 9000/300 series, the NeXT workstation (black hardware), the Q40 and Q60, and Sun 3 series workstations.
