This Website is dedicated to the port of the Linux operating system
to the DECStation series of workstations. As this port must be regarded
as 'work in progress', this website will be allways 'under construction'.
The information on this pages will change often, and might be outdated
the moment it is published.
I've lots of plans to write more information for this website,
but my time is limited, so pages will be added as time permits...
