There isn't, but for the the software crowd (e.g. Debian) it is more
interesting since it is somewhat more useable for developing software
right now.  They have a gcc toolchain and demoed a MP3 player under
uCLinux on their OR1200.  I don't think a MMU is available already, so
it can't do full Linux yet.

Their website http://www.opencores.org/ seems to be down at the moment,
