"Linux performed very well on our 450MHz Power Mac G3. The graphical interface was crisply responsive, and an informal test of the Apache Web server showed it to be considerably faster than Apache running under Apple's OS X Server.

"LinuxPPC 1999 is a well-executed port of the latest Linux distribution. If you're technically savvy, you'll find Linux a speedy server. But a Macintosh it's not, so don't even think about running a LinuxPPC-equipped machine as a desktop computer."

"Poor documentation; complex installation."
