about="""
NetBSD/next68k is a port of NetBSD to the 'black' 68k NeXT hardware.

It currently only runs on 68040 NeXT systems using non-ADB keyboard and
mouse. There is experimental support for turbo NeXT machines (33Mhz) in
NetBSD-current.

Darrin B. Jewell is the maintainer of NetBSD/next68k.

-   [Support for non-512 byte sector
    disks](http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/port-next68k/2003/10/15/0005.html)
    since NeXTSTEP disks are typically formatted this way
-   Bring der Mouse's [X
    server](http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/port-next68k/2001/11/27/0000.html)
    into the tree
