Actually, the ELKS webpage mentions that it should be technically possible and
not-too-difficult to port ELKS to PDP-11

 Well, I'm not sure that Wind-blows is really an appropriate topic either
 but I see people talking about it all the time.
 I doubt it will 'piss' Bill off since we're talking about how Linux can
 be used to 'resurrect' ancient and obsolete hardware like 386sx's and so
 on. Although it's not Altairs, I think it is in the spirit of what we're
 all about.
 Heck, every day I wonder why there isn't a Linux PDP-11 port. =-)
