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.

Why Linux on an imac?
by hibridmatthias on Tue 25th Mar 2003 00:43 UTC

Actually, I just purchased an iMac 700mHZ for use when I am on the train. I'm not a computer scientist, computer engineer, or even an IT guy...just a pharmacist who has been strictly linux for the past couple of years (started with Mandrake 7.0 and Red Hat 6.2 in a linux for dummies book. Then went to Red Hat 7.2, then tried Red Hat 8.0 and am currently using Suse 8.0 personal..

As a person who has dealt with an insane number of issues in my decision to convert to linux (Yes I was frustrated with MS crashfests and the constant changing of word processing formats that much!) I must say that I am considering installing YDL on my iMac for one reason: StarOffice 6.0.

After using OSX for several months now, I miss right clicking and I miss my KDE when I am on the train, BUT I especially miss StarOffice 6.0! It is my killer app by far! I have it on the PCs at work and my linux box at home, and how have no problems with taking work home...And saving stuff under OSX onto a CDROM is just not as intuitive to me as it is under Linux!

Forgive the long post, but many of you are much more in tune with the computer industry, and I just wanted to put in a few cents from someone who is a normal guy determined to make Linux work from a personal satisfaction point of view.
