that’s a bit sad. i’ll pour a forty out. thanks to miod for pretty tirelessly keeping a lot of these old things running years and years beyond when anyone else would have. :)
It is a bit sad. I think old hardware is fun and worth preserving, but there is a point in time where it becomes impractical to maintain newer software and a lot of history is wrapped up in the proprietary software too.
Check out the pictures of the mvme88k at the bottom of this page, it’s pretty cool looking http://www.openbsd.org/mvme88k.html,
It looks like the 88k arch will live on in some other ports, but OpenBSD has retired all 68k archs.
