Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Linux has millions of fans. What's not to like? A free operating system with ten thousand free applications, websites covering everything you might ever want to know, tutorials, active forums, and more. Yet for all these benefits, situations pop up when you want a faster, lighter operating system. Perhaps you have an older computer, or maybe a netbook or a mobile device. Wouldn't it be great to have a lightweight Ubuntu? That day has finally arrived. Lubuntu offers a way to stay in the Ubuntu family -- with a product that performs better and uses fewer resources.

Any chance of PPC support?

I run Ubuntu 10.4 on my main machine at home, and recently picked up a top-of-the-line G4 (PPC) Mac Mini (because I wanted a PPC machine, and didn't want to have to haul around another tower), which was about to get the Ubuntu treatment.

Does Lubuntu support PPC? It seems it would be a better fit, as the G4 runs at only 1.5 Ghz, has a half-gig of RAM (and tops out at 1gig). Its probably equivalent to a fast PIII or so.
