Subject: MIPS support?
I found a mention of the R2000/R3000 in hosts.self. Is there going to
soon be support for the MIPS chip? Will it work on my DECStation?
(This is of great interest to me, as all I can use at the moment is a
Sun 3 in an office far, far away -- the main reason I haven't been
using self much)
We have no plans to launch a MIPS port, but it would be a nice experiment
to evaluate certain architectural features of SPARC vs MIPS
PS: maybe you can find one of the cheap SPARC machines around?
