When I commented about the OS options for x86 compared to PPC I was not trying to exclude distributions such as Yellow Dog Linux that can run on PPC hardware. The problem that some may not be aware of is that currently commercial software that was ported to Linux was compiled for x86 and not Linux PPC. For example Apple users can use Shake ported to OSX on OSX but cannot use Shake ported to Linux x86 on Yellow Dog Linux that's ported to PPC. Not that one would really need or want to use Shake on a laptop but just using it as an example.
