Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Linux has millions of fans. What's not to like? A free operating system with ten thousand free applications, websites covering everything you might ever want to know, tutorials, active forums, and more. Yet for all these benefits, situations pop up when you want a faster, lighter operating system. Perhaps you have an older computer, or maybe a netbook or a mobile device. Wouldn't it be great to have a lightweight Ubuntu? That day has finally arrived. Lubuntu offers a way to stay in the Ubuntu family -- with a product that performs better and uses fewer resources.

And possibly MorphOS, you can get a free trial that works for 30 minutes as full version. (Per boot).

MorphOS is worth a try, OWB is a pretty good webrowser, a new version released today. The OS is fast, although it must be said, not for everyone. It's not as rock solid as a stable Linux, or heck, OS X install, and there's not a good flash player for it, but then I suppose there's not a good flash player for PPC Linux either.

If you want you can download it and instructions from http://www.morphos-team.net/downloads.html

It works from the CD, Live CD style, so it's worth a some of your time. you might like, or maybe not.
