The upcoming G5 PowerBook and Debian.
On the 24th of this month, the Oracle from Redwood will certainly
announce the G5 PowerBook.
As a 64-bit, big-endian architecture is a boon to compiler writers
(because it will point out lots of mistakes, especially in C programs),
I want to switch as soon as possible (ATM I'm using a G4 PowerBook).
As far as I can see, there's no full 64-bit PowerPC-variant of Debian
ready - however, I'd be saved if I could transparently upgrade the
current PowerPC Debian to a 64-bit version when ready.
Would that be possible ?
Thanks in advance,
