Motorola has never quit selling Linux-capable PowerPC systems.  See
http://www.mcg.mot.com for more info.  Every board that is sold can run
Linux.  I suppose you want ATX form factor so take a look at the MTX
boards.  There are systems available based on these boards, as well.
Avnet is one of a few distributors of boards and systems that one can buy
a single unit from.  If you go to LinuxWorld, you can see it for yourself.
AFAIK, IBM still sells plenty of Linux-capable PowerPC systems.
Especially since they have Cort doing the porting to them.  There is a
public announcment somewhere on IBM's web pages.
