PPC Linux

Dec 18 2007

OS X is too much of a hog to keep it running on my ‘lamp’ iMac and I figured the hardware is old enough for even PPC Linux to install painlessly. Sadly we don’t have live CDs for PPC and I haven’t been able to burn a DVD-RW that the imac would read, so I went and grabbed Gutsy. Booted right into the native res, and in less than an hour I had refreshed the life of a dying machine. I am still impressed by ubuntu installation. It’s precisely how it’s supposed to be done for a desktop machine.

Few more years and I’ll even have GL running :)
