"I've had a PowerBook G4 for a while now and never really had the change to install Linux on it until this past week. And to honest I didn't even think that they would have kernel support for the Titanium yet anyway since Apple seems to be the "odd-man-out" when it comes to Linux development. Boy was I wrong.....

My distribution of choice was Yellow Dog Linux from Terra Soft Solutions. Adam and I had the opportunity to speak a bit with the co-founder and CEO Kai Staats of Terra Soft Solutions at the MacWorld Expo in NYC last month and I must say I was impressed. Not only was I impressed with their 2.0 release but the new hardware they rolled out that day as well.

Yellow Dog Linux is a very robust distribution based heavily on the Red Hat x86 distro. With two big differences, it's uses a PPC kernel (obviously), and the default installation is much more secure than Red Hat's distribution. Yellow Dog leaves all ports turned off by default leaving it up to you turn on which services you plan to use for your particular application."
