Fedora 4 will support mini.

"The upcoming Fedora Core 4 is slated to support computers with IBM's Power processors, such as Apple Computer's Mac Mini. A Silicon Graphics programmer, Prarit Bhargava, is trying to bring Fedora to computers using Intel's Itanium processors. And Red Hat programmer Tom "Spot" Callaway, working on his own time, has begun converging his Aurora project, which lets Linux run on Sun Microsystems' Sparc processors, with Fedora."

I'd rather run Gentoo (or even Debian) myself...but this is certainly good news for the communities (mini AND linux). Debian and Gentoo have been able to run on PPC and SPARC for quite a while now... Smile
