Morphos The MorphOS team seems to be on a roll. Recently, they added support for the PowerPC G4 Mac mini models from Apple, meaning it suddenly became a lot easier to get your hands on a computer capable of running MorphOS. As expected, the team has now announced that a release with PowerMac G4 support is coming as well.

I just tried Ubuntu PPC, Karmic Kola's PPC .ISO file is too large for a CD-RW, apparently there is a one available that will fit, but I gave up looking as I'm too busy. I found an old one, for Intrepid Ibex, It's not a live CD, just an old fashioned old school non-graphical install one, No problem with that, but it failed to detect the CD it booted from... I think I have vague memories of the command I had to type it to get it work, but I've got other things to do.

Maybe a different Distro© would work better, but Linux to revive old Macs is a nice idea that simply dosn't work out in the real world.
