just thinkin, I don't think a sparc32 chip has been released in more
than 12 years. Surely these cannot be energy efficient machines ;)

And LEON processor ? A sparc V8 that can be written in a FPGA ? It runs with Linux. Berkeley university has a work in progress on a super computer that uses sparc32 too.

Why does a Linux distribution need the latest bleeding edge kernel ?
With no new hardware to support it should be easy to put together a
distribution with the last known good kernel and the latest applications.
