The next big project in work at freeio.org is a Next Generation Software Development Unit. This is based on the Motorola MCF5307 ColdFire processor, and is being built from the start to run uClinux (look here and here for details) which is a version of GNU/Linux optimized for processors without memory management units, such as the Motorola DragonBall and ColdFire.
