     100<p><strong>Does DarwinPorts run on any other operating systems?</strong></p>
     101
     102<p>There have already been patches submitted to make DarwinPorts run
     103on everything from Solaris to FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD, though not
     104all of this work has made it into the mainline tree yet.  DarwinPorts
     105itself was designed to be a highly portable framework in which
     106individual ports can note which platforms they run on (via the
     107<strong>platforms</strong> keyword) and have platform-specific rules
     108which are automatically invoked only when the port is being
     109built/installed on that particular platform.  Work is currently
     110underway to leverage that capability into a ports collection which
     111supports multiple operating systems and CPU architectures.</p>
