  1. ^ A quote from the NetBSD port page: NetBSD/luna68k is a port of NetBSD to the LUNA product line of OMRON Tateishi Electric, Japan. The LUNA was a 20MHz/m68030 desktop computer at the age of then-booming UNIX workstations, roughly comparable to a sun3/60 and any m68020/m68030 unix boxes at that time. It is a descendent of the company's 6U VME deskside m68010 box nicknamed Supermate, and was succeeded by a m68040 variant, LUNA-II. It has a rare cousin LUNA-88K which sports 4 88k processors geared by CMU Mach2.5.
