Linux The new Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 brings recent Linux user interface improvements to the PowerPC architecture. Smooth, anti-aliased fonts and the clean, refined style of Red Hat's Blue Curve theme make this a beautiful creation to look at. There are screenshots here, though they aren't big enough to really do it justice.

RE: System requirements?

Red Hat recommends a fast Pentium (166 or 200 Mhz) for text-based operations and at least 128 MB and 400 MHz for X11 graphical operations.

I was able to run comfortably (even OpenOffice) RH 8 with a PII-350 AND 256MB, so I think the key is "balance between memory and CPU speed".

(I was also able to run YDL 2.3 with a light WM on a 5500 - PPC 630ev@250MHz - with 128MB RAM)
