     Awesome!  Just out of curiosity, are there any more ports to 
well known software/hardware platforms planned for the near future?

IMHO, porting Inferno to some "ancient" pieces of hardware might
really turn some heads.  Are "advanced" microprocessor features
like memory protection critical for Inferno to be ported to a particular
platform?  What I'm getting at is maybe a port to an 80286 of 6502 
based machine.  Personally, I'd love to see Inferno running on an
Apple II!  You may consider this a waste of time, but I believe that
mixing Inferno with some existing technologies could produce a nice NC.
