    The PPC64LE Microwatt should be more complete than the unfinished PPC32 zCore Pippo or the finished but scalar-only PPC32 Nux at least.

    "Microwatt [...] does not currently implement any floating-point or vector instructions, hypervisor mode, big-endian mode, 32-bit mode, or the HPT/SLB MMU facilities."

    Edit2: added quote
    Edit3: added Nux
