PenguinPPC.org: Defining Who We Are

[ Thanks to jeramy b smith for this link. ]

"A lot of people new to the scene wonder what this site is, how it came to be, and whose idea it was? So, we present some history for you so put this site in perspective."

"In April of 2000, there was no central repository of good information. LinuxPPC.org was there but was poorly maintained and controlled by a distributor. The Faq-O-Matic was not up to date. The mailing lists were the only good sources of info. Kevin Hendricks finally called a spade a spade in this mail..."

"Things started rolling quickly once the list was created. For some reason, Jeramy B. Smith volunteered his domain name penguinppc.org for the project and gave up his own web site, Grantham volunteered linuxmac.net, Kevyn Shortell volunteered ppclinux.org, and Jeff Carr volunteered linuxppc.org. Things were looking better every minute. Grantham started working on the design while Hollis Blanchard of LinuxPPC Inc. and Jeramy started rolling content. People who did not have the time to commit to editing content or working on design issues still were available to give wise advice: Brad Midgeley, Olaf Hering, Kevin Hendricks, David Gatwood, Chuq Raspaq, et. al."
