Sorry about that! We will reach out to one of the Darwin Developers that has an ODW. He is also on the Gentoo Power Team so he is still around. Apple announced the end in July and then in August Darwin 8.7 (Mac OS X 10.4.7) was released. We are not the people to ask where Darwin is headed, but we will check on the situation.
At least, the major project drive is dead;http://www.opendarwin.org/en/news/shutdown.html
What point is there now? Apple moving off to Intel, they will drop Power in the end. Running Darwin on it's own with X and so on is no different to booting FreeBSD.
Time would be better spent getting one of the other operating systems off the ground. FreeBSD, NetBSD, both are good candidates and share similar system design (in fact Darwin's toolset is based on FreeBSD, as Linux's toolset is GNU)
I don't agree with you Neko. For the moment I own Macs ( real Macs with Power processors ). I want to run Mac OS X on Power processors as long as possible. Because for me, it get the best soft with the best hardware. I'm sure I will by a Peg on day in order to boot Mac OS X on.
... and when Apple will make war to its good old custumors... I will go to Linux ( or BSD ) on Power. But, we are still no there. So I really think it's a good idea and a good job to work on booting Mac OS X on Power(full and efficient) machines.
