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.

ydl 2.3 runs fine on my old powermac 6500/250, ram is a bit of an issue but with 64 mb, i got away with most things and processes in kde/gnome.. it's sluggish, but a joy to use

kde and gnome are getting better, but also more bloated (in a windows xp kinda way), i dont think my 6500 will deal too well with ydl 3.0, its a shame that it requires newer macs to run what older pc's can do, linux on mac is not a big deal apparently, but tinkering is a great hobby of mine, linux does work and does work well, but its a hobbyist's OS (somewhat like BeOS, now that nobody develops PPC versions)..
