I have ported Slackware 12.0 to SPARC and MIPS and am running it
on x86 as well, because that is what I am very comfortable with and
my company is supporting. Internally we mainly run an operating
system heavily based on Slackware with many applications added.

I can also install other current Linux distributions such as Debian,
Ubuntu, Gentoo, Red Hat/Fedora/Aurora but I'm not involved with
their development. I will do what is necessary to achieve a good
modern GNU/Linux SPARC JVM.
