I wanted to share with the world my pleasure with Ubuntu Linux. I am writing this from the Ubuntu live PPC distribution! It is truly a far cry from linux PPC circa 1998!
Linux PPC 1998:
dive yourself crazy for approx. 3 days just trying to get it to boot. Once you finally get it working be prepared for a sloppy, choppy, confusing interface. Once you learn to deal with it you soon find out that you cannot do ANYTHING productive without more hours of frustrating configuration.
Ubuntu PPC live:
Insert CD. reboot (off CD). answer a few simple questions and I'm here!
Well done Ubuntu! Well done! I may just have to pick up a cheap x86 box to set up a more permanant arrangement.
