I have just been reading about Ubuntu's decision to
deprecate their ppc version of Ubuntu for future
releases -- at least part of said decision was a cost
issue -- related to number of users who actually use
I have also just been reading that the mainline Debian
project has been going through a similiar decision
process regarding debian ppc.
I am encouraged that the Sony PS3 uses a Cell CPU --
which has a modified ppc core to it -- thus it can run
Fedora PPC and does judging from videos on YouTube...
I tried to report that I use Fedora PPC using that new
hardware report tool from the Fedora Project
page....but that failed for some reason...
Thus the question: Are we in any danger of Fedora PPC
being deprecated or stopped in the near future? Also
who do we need to petition to stop any poisonous
thinking along these lines among leaders of the Fedora
I admit I have selfish reasons for asking all this...
I run a dual boot
MacOSX Tiger/Fedora Core 6 PPC Blue and White G3 that
I built from parts off ebay in a leftover PC Case from
a Burned out AMD Athlon.
I could and probably will build more of these for a
few people I know if I can still find OS and software
that will run on them.
Thanks for your time-
