ZDNet's review of Yellow Dog Linux says it's great for Macs that
aren't up to running OS X and users who really, really like Linux:
"There is actually a significant crowd of people out there who
actually buy the new hardware, such as the Titanium PowerBook, just
to run Linux. They wouldn't be buying the machines if there wasn't
a non-BSD solution out there."
"YDL 2.0 comes with a new graphical installer; offers a
simplified booting procedure that is automatically configured
during installation; and supports the KDE 2.1 desktop, kernels
2.2.19 and 2.4.4, XFree86 4.0.2, Mozilla, Open Office and Java.
Terra Soft has simplified the setup of Mac-On-Linux, an application
that allows the classic Mac OS to run within Linux, and the new
software supports recent Apple products, such as the Titanium
PowerBook G4 and AirPort wireless networking."
