I was wondering what the best OS to run on the SGI O2 would be, I have read that Gentoo is not quite ready yet in this thread:

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=97919&highlight=sgi+o2

Would this be a good chance for me to learn about netbsd or freebsd? Or will they also be only partially functional and I should just try to get my hands on IRIX? How difficult would it be to work towards getting Gentoo working on this (R5K), and who is working on it currently?

Thanks.

Give these links a read:

Note: It's all pretty experimental, so it might not work completely.
