"Mac Linux distributor LinuxPPC is preparing to widen the appeal of its PowerPC implementation of the open source OS with a push into the Mac retail and resale channel."

"The drive will centre on the company's upcoming LinuxPPC 2000 release, to be made available in a box set comprising dual source and binary CDs, and, at long last, a printed manual."

"LinuxPPC 2000 sports upgraded kernel, utilities, application and GUI software; an improved, faster version of its graphical installation utility; and a graphical disk partitioning utility. It will also be the company's first version of Linux to boot directly off the CD. LinuxPPC 2000 is based on the popular x86-oriented Red Hat Linux."
