    In addition to what Kronos said, MorphOS is being ported to Sam460 (and has already been shown running on it), which has U-Boot.

    > MorphOS instead uses Open-smart firmware to run

    MorphOS also runs with non-"smart" OpenFirmware (on PPC Macs), and has also run with other firmwares in the past.

    Well, they have open-sourced the Pegasos II motherboard, but just "forgot" to do same with the CPU board ;-) (btw, was that ever given at a later point?)
