So, what's the interest in trying to keep the PowerPC port alive?
Well, it *prooves* that the distribution is portable.
If something new and good emerges hardwarewise, I know I will be
able to switch without changing distribution.
That said, another thing I foresee is that I'll personally have to
switch all my Apple PPC machines to linux sooner or later, for
leopard macos is becoming solwer and slower on that platform.
Of course, once I foind another suitable distro, I'll swtitch to
that one all my Intel machines too, not to have to follow upgrade
evolution twice.
And yes, that's a pity, it was such a good quality distribution...
