I forgot to mention a couple weeks ago when I wrote about trying to install LinuxPPC on my Mac: LinuxPPC is no longer maintained. There are plenty of other Linux distributions for the Mac, though, including SuSE’s and Yellow Dog. I’m a big fan of Yellow Dog, for reasons that I admit I don’t entirely understand. Probably because they’ve long worked exclusively on the PowerPC.

Still, I’ve decided against running Linux in addition to OS X and OS 9 on our primary Mac. No need, and more a pain than it’s worth. MacGIMP is something else, though! Part of me really wants to look hard at Fink, since I would love to get some things like GNOME working with OS X, but…nah. Not for now. Although the possibiliy of eventually being able to run Ximian Evolution does interest me.
