Lack of buzz about it outside the Linux community, I suppose.
I should also point out that NetBSD (whose slogan is "Of course it
runs NetBSD!") runs on at least Alpha, Ultrasparc, and AMD, and perhaps more.
Often the kernel is 64-bit but most userland programs are delivered as
32-bit, though there's nothing to stop you from recompiling them.

5-bit Baudot code plus appropriate headers) is as good a legal document
as any, even sans digital signature." --me
