 #Platforms supported by NetBSD  [[!meta title="Platforms supported by NetBSD"]]
 NetBSD calls a supported architecture a 'port'. Most ports run on generic hardware and emulators, although some commercial hardware also exists. The NetBSD Ports History page details the inclusion date for each port.  NetBSD calls a supported architecture a 'port'. Most ports run on generic hardware and emulators, although some [commercial hardware](http://www.netbsd.org/gallery/hardware.html) also exists. The NetBSD Ports History page details the inclusion date for each port.
   
 Ports are classified into three 'tiers' based on the current importance of the architecture and the level of community activity. Summarizing, the tiers can be viewed to represent ports that NetBSD will support, ports that NetBSD does its best to support, and ports which may be desupported soon. The tier for each port may change over time and is decided by <core@NetBSD.org> based on input from users and developers.  Ports are classified into three 'tiers' based on the current importance of the architecture and the level of community activity.

 Organic ports are highly valued by the NetBSD project, but their development is not as tightly mandated as that of the focus ports. Generally speaking, the hardware platforms of organic ports have lost their industrial relevance, or there is not enough community activity for the port to make it to the first tier.
