If Linux interests you more than OS X, you may be interested in MandrakeSoft’s recent release of
Mandrake Linux 8.2 for PowerPC. The Linux implementation is designed to run on a wide variety of PowerPC-equipped Macs, including both “NewWorld” systems like the iMac, iBook, PowerBook, and blue and white Power Mac G3 and Power Mac G4, as well as many “OldWorld” beige Mac systems.
The new release of Mandrake Linux sports optimization for G3 processors, user friendly configuration tools, and the most up-to-date software, according to MandrakeSoft.
Installation is supported in more than 40 different languages, and features a graphical installer, the “Mandrake Control Center” to set up your computer and peripherals, software management tools, and Internet wizards as well.
Mandrake Linux 8.2 also sports KDE 2.2.2, GNOME 1.4, Mac-on-Linux 0.9.6, and many other tools.
It’s available both as a 2-CD set you can order online or as a pair of ISO images you can burn to CD if you prefer. More details are available from the MandrakeSoft Web site.
