Re: On the status of support for the current generation iBooks

I have been running debian 'testing' on my ibook 800 for about three
years now. I'v
e really enjoyed the increased support that has come about for the
PPC. It's about time for me to upgrade to something a bit faster with
more 'juice', I've been considering a 15'' PowerbookPPC for sometime
now. My only concern is; will PPC development be droping off? I know
it won't disappear overnight, but how do the next 2-5 years look? And
if they can get  XP to boot on the x86 MacBook, how long before linux
x86 will be running on Apple hardware?
