Question #8: Other Architectures

Would you find it useful if Valgrind was available on other architectures? If so which one(s)?

Again, bad for the same reasons that Question 7 was bad.

--------------------- Other Architectures ----------------------------
not important           26
no answer               10

generally yes           6

SPARC                   0, 17, 6       40
PowerPC                 5, 7, 10       39
AMD-64                  1, 11, 5       30
ia64                    1, 5, 4        17
Power(4)                2, 3, 1        13 
something 64-bit        1, 3, 0         9
Alpha                   0, 3, 1         7
ARM                     0, 1, 2         4
Intel or AMD 64-bit     0, 1, 1         3
zSeries                 0, 1, 0         2
MIPS                    0, 1, 0         2
embedded system ;)      0, 0, 2         2
xscale                  0, 0, 1         1
RISC                    0, 0, 1         1

I've lumped all the SPARC versions together; some specified particular ones (eg SPARC 8/9/64, UltraSparc). I think it was boosted by normally being paired with Solaris, because Solaris was pretty popular.

Pretty close between PowerPC, and SPARC and AMD-64. SPARC's case is weakened by the different versions being lumped together; AMD-64 strengthened because they're all definitely referring to the same version; I'm not sure about PowerPC on that front. PowerPC easily inspired the most passionate answers. IA64 further back, thankfully.
