I am of curious as to peoples experiences with OpenPOWER machines and gentoo - is it as simple as using the ppc64 arch iso instead of x86_64? If anyone uses it for a workstation, what apps do you have? is there anything normal missing? (ie: that one would have on an x86_64 workstation)

I noticed that gentoo only has big endian isos instead of little endian and I am also wondering what this means for software availability as I have never heard of endianness before a few months ago.
