Re: [Stretch] Status for architecture qualification
In addition to the debian powerpc mailing list, powerpc users are active on the Ubuntu forums. I'm running Debian Sid on a Powerbook and everything works except 3D acceleration. I don't see a need to drop it.

mailing list is active so I would say it
still has some users. I have been using

However I do agree that true
PowerPC hardware is actually
and it is alive mostly thanks to being an ABI using
32bits integer for PPC64 CPU(s).
