There is an ongoing movement to port Linux/m68k to the NeXT hardware. Currently the booter is being worked on. Progress is difficult because the lack of documentation available for this platform. Apple is dropping 680x0 support in future OS releases and current technical support does not make this effort easier.
Several individuals have expressed interest in the port to the m68k NeXT computers, including:
Martin Bähr <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Mike Allison <email@example.com>
Cal McInvale <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The current status of this porting effort is unclear. More information should be available at the Li/NeXT web site, http://www.black.linux-m68k.org/ and/or Zach Brown's site, http://www.zabbo.net/linux/next/.
