The Register: LinuxPPC readies retail release

“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.”
