Elias, the System76 netbooks are x86, so you may be interested in
those. I believe qemu has some feature to allow you to run binaries
from one architecture on another, but I've never used this facility so
can't attest to its practicality. You should be able to build the bulk
of free software on any architecture, I can't comment on other
Also, I am interested in developing games for the free software
community, however I don't think this list is a good place to discuss
it. Do you have the resources to setup another mailing list for your
game? I'd like to follow progress and possibly contribute to such an
If you don't have the resources, I believe Savannah
<http://savannah.nongnu.org> have facilities available to the public,
I've used it in the past for a hobby project with a friend. You may be
able to setup a mailing list there, I can't be certain. Alternatively
there is SourceForge <http://sourceforge.net> but in my personal
experience their acceptance procedure is slow, so you may have a wait
(it was several years ago the last time I used it, I can't even recall
the project I used it for).
