    Phoronix: LLVM Clang Mainlines Support For The Motorola 68000 Series (m68k)

    If it wasn't odd enough during these pandemic times seeing Nintendo 64 support upstreamed into the Linux 5.12 kernel a few weeks back, the latest vintage hardware seeing open-source support still going on is the Motorola 68000 series 32-bit processors.

                    Rust for rusty hardware.
                    Perfect match
