A while back I was thinking on this question and it popped in "8-bits!" Lo and behold someone has ported it to the c=64. As of yet though they haven't ported it over to the Atari 8-bits. Also I was just thinking that they haven't ported it over for the atari lynx (though who knows how they would.....) or the Atari Jaguar. Hey, it works on the Dreamcast, X-box and PS2, so why not?

They haven't ported it to the old IBM RS/6000s (the original POWER boxes with the MCA bus). I actually have a couple of those machines here (don't ask) and a while ago I thought I'd have a go even though it would probably be well out of my depth, but I couldn't get any real documentation out of IBM.

One they missed, eh? Let's see if we can make a list.

I don't know about Linux, but NetBSD (http://netbsd.org/Ports/dreamcast/) made a dreamcast port.

There's a nice page here: http://perso.wanadoo.es/xose/linux/linux_ports.html listing what Linux has been ported to so far. The Dreamcast is based on the Hitachi SH, so info on that should be with the LinuxSH project.
