This has already been discussed here -- I'll put an item on it
into the next faq update.

As I understand it (not being a kernel person), R1 will very likely
be x86 only. On the bright side, Travis G. already has NewOS running
on Dreamcast (going on info from his site http://newos.sourceforge.net )
with planned ports for:

iMac - G3/G4 based Apple products 
SGI Indy - MIPS R5000 based Indy in 32- and 64-bit mode -- in progress, boots

Sun Blade 100 - UltraSPARC IIe in 64-bit mode 
DEC Multia - Alpha 
Amiga 3000 - M68030 
Atari Falcon - M68030 

The other, upper levels of OpenBeOS (all c++?) will be inherently
cross platform. Such is the power of modular software. Muahahaha.

Please correct me if I'm wrong about any of this so I can get
it right in the faq. Thanks!
