Morphos A new product arises from Genesi: The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements. Both IBM and Motorola feature the new product in their pages.

Well, I'm another happy gentoo user (doing serious work with my box: C++ development, web design, 2D/ 3D graphics, video). BTW, gentoo is about the only distro that works out of the box and perfectly on AMD64, without quirks (I write this from my Opteron)...
Yes, there is a list of the currently available ebuilds at .
Yes, portage does dependency tracking (better than RPM, IMHO).
Yes, there are two GUI frontends (kportage for KDE and one for Gnome; I don't know it's name).

So, I consider Linux pretty much ready for the desktop... ;-)
