We are happy to see a new software workgroup ready to start working on making their preferrred OS run on our PowerPC Notebook!

ppc64 gnu/linux testing and fix packages before have the PowerPC Notebook

Any people interested in contributing to a PowerPC 64 GNU/Linux on our PowerPC Notebook should start working on testing the distro on current 64 bit PowerPC machines. There is no reason to wait for the notebook to be finished.  In any case it is important to increase the number of applications that will run on “generic” powerpc 64bits. This way we start contributing to the whole PowerPC community, before having our PowerPC Notebook.

    I have installed Fedora on my wife’s PC and I was impressed on how clean and easy to use this distribution is! A great alternative to Ubuntu for those who are looking for the latest packages and still perfect for users who don’t know much about linux. I look forward to seing this distribution on the PowerPC notebook!
