Linux: It's Not Just for Intel Anymore
Jim Paradis sums it up well:
Implementing ANY operating system on a new platform, is a major undertaking. It has taken dozens, if not hundreds, of programmer-years to bring the Intel version of Linux to the point where it is today. Too, while a kernel port is a significant piece of engineering, it is only a small part of porting an operating system. It is not surprising that the non-Intel versions of Linux are taking some time to appear.
