Re: Linux on Mac PPC vs AMD64

Apple supports hardware for the duration of your warranty (or the
warranty + the AppleCare duration if you've purchased it.) They'll
continue to do that even during the Intel transition and after. With
AppleCare you've got a guaranteed 3 years of hardware support. After
that time, the computer is getting kind of crustry anyway in
comparison to all of the new things that have come out since then.

this may be a slight off subject,
however, I have a choice to purchase a dual g5 with 4gb of Ram,

is longevities.

Since Mac is dumping ppc is moving intel,
and AMD 64 is moving up the ranks... I was just thinking, if
I purchase the Mac, may have a problem of supported hardware
for ppc ???

please note: been a long time mac user since 1982,
however, open source is really taking over, and looking
to stay with the flow.
