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."
