In my opinion Debian is quickly becoming the _only_ alternative (and a
necessary one) for PowerPC Macs. For example, anyone running Tiger
(10.4) or older no longer has any software support (whether Firefox or
OpenOffice). As crazy as this may sound, the only way to have
up-to-date software on such machines is to run Debian.

This is one reason that I believe the Debian/powerpc port is so
