Z krainy miłości (Loveland, Colorado) przyszła do nas wiadomość, że pojawiła się nowa wersja Yellow Dog Linuksa – dystrybucji przeznaczonej na komputery z procesorem PowerPC (m.in. makówki).

Zawartość: gcc 3.2.1, KDE 3.1, GNOME 2.2, XFree86 4.3.

Ciekawostką jest MOL (Mac-On-Linux) – oprogramowanie umożliwiające odpalenie MacOSa na komputerze z procesorem PowerPC. Sam na swoim biurku gościłem kilka dni temu ten system operacyjny – dzięki MOLowi uruchomiliśmy go na serwerze IBMa (RS 6000). Działa wszystko, łącznie z MS Office i Internet Explorerem. A wszystko pod kontrolą Linuksa.
