Techweb: Apple To Ship PowerPC With Linux

“At MacWorld next month, the company will announce a new line of
PowerPCs, including one that runs a version of the Linux operating
system instead of the traditional Macintosh OS, several retail
sources said.”

“Yes, they’re coming out with a PowerPC loading Linux. They’re
really thinking different,” said one retail source. “But it’s a
non-retail product.”
