Even with Linux, the choice isn't so hard, with a growing amount of
software supporting Altivec. In particular, watching DVDs is certainly
much more of a pleasure on a TiBook now than it will probably ever be on
a G3 Notebook.

Also, in contrast to e.g. the sound problems with an iBook2, pretty much
all of the TiBook's hardware is well supported.
