about="""
NetBSD/macppc is a relatively new NetBSD port. The first binary release
for macppc was [NetBSD 1.4](../../releases/formal-1.4/). It supports
most Apple Power Macintosh computers with PowerPC processors and Open
Firmware. For older (680x0-based) Macintosh computers, see
[NetBSD/mac68k](../mac68k/). There is also an experimental
[NetBSD/bebox](../bebox/) port for Be, Inc's PowerPC-based BeBox.

The earliest PowerPC machines lack Open Firmware, and are not yet
supported in NetBSD. [mkLinux](http://www.mklinux.org/) is the only free
unix that supports them, although if you are interested in porting to
these models you should post to the `<port-macppc@NetBSD.org>`{.email}.
