Don’t sell your PowerPC G4 yet!

With the introduction of Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 another series of Apple computers got pushed back. Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 feature fair system requirements compared to the economical lifespan of modern / current day computers.

Mac OS X 10.5 is already running on my Apple Mac Pro 2.0GHz (2x Intel Xeon Dual Core CPU). Since I’ve also acquired Adobe Creative Suite 3 I was more than thrilled to experience a speed bump. Unfortunately Adobe Creative Suit 3 can’t be run on 10.5 yet.

I find my Apple Powerbook G4 (1.25GHz PowerPC and 1,5Gb System Ram) running noticeably slower than with Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Tiger). While you might find Mac OS X 10.4.x fast enough and you have no shortcomings, you might want to play, explore and learn about Ubuntu Linux on a Mac.

Currently Ubuntu Linux 6.10 (Edgy Eft) can be downloaded also for PowerPC computers. While the PowerPC isn’t being considered a important architecture for Ubuntu they still have a community team safeguarding this release.

You can download Ubuntu Linux 6.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) for your PowerPC from these locations:

Ubuntu Linux 6.10 (Edgy Eft)

Kubuntu Linux 6.10 (Edgy Eft)

Upcoming period I will dedicate some time in order to write a user experience / review about this specific release on my Apple Powerbook G4.
