"Although the Cube is the machine getting all the press these
days, in terms of operating systems, the buzz clearly goes to Linux
-- at least until an OS X beta ships. Linux is predominantly
found on Intel boxes, but if this year's Linux World Expo is any
indication, the "open source that could" is making steady inroads
into the Mac community."
"SuSe was showing off version 6.4 of their Linux OS, which is
designed for Power PCs. Version 6.4 allows users to either auto- or
custom-install Linux on a partitioned Mac. The setup software
detects hardware, sports a graphical interface, and will even
partition your drive for you -- although the SuSe rep I spoke with
recommended running the custom install and partitioning the drive
yourself. SuSe Linux 6.4 allows users to run either Gnome or KDE
desktops. Since it comes with Mac-on-Linux (among other
applications), this is one time when Mac users can have their cake
and eat it too. In addition, Linux 6.4 supports USB for almost all
keyboards and mice, as well as several other devices."
