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.

Mac's are nice computers however....

I would love to see these things happen:

1) Please fix up MacOS X, I mean, you've got grunty hardware and an OS which is a bloat be-arge. I mean, for all intensive purposes MacOS X IS the bottle neck. I mean, if it means needed to really change things then so be it, heck, why not replace the guts and license the core of AIX off IBM? it scales well, threads well, already 64bit-ish and IBM has nothing to lose as it doesn't aim AIX at the desktop.

2) Processor speed needs to improve. Sure, if there was a 200-300mhz gap, yes, you could say there is a mega-hertz myth, but to say that an 800Mhz PowerPC equals a 3Ghz Pentium 4?

3) This is probably a less important, however, I would prefer it if Apple sold a PowerPC desktop with the same styling and colour (black) as IBM's RS/6000 Workstation.
