The Register: SuSE Linux joins Debian to embrace Mac

"SuSE is to join Debian as the second major Linux distributor to expand its horizons beyond the x86 world to the PowerPC processor in general and the Mac in particular."

"A "beta quality" version of SuSE 6.3 for the Mac will be unveiled tomorrow at MacWorld Expo, here in San Francisco. The finished release is set to ship in the Spring, but in the 'in-development' Linux world, most software is inherently in a kind of permanent beta test state, so SuSE's stability should be pretty good...."

"Debian's version of Linux for PowerPC has been in the works for some time, though the organisation has largely kept quiet about it, awaiting for the next major release of the Intel version, 2.2, when the two releases can be consolidated, before shipping the Mac release."
