Yellow Dog Linux supports Mac mini
Wednesday February 9, 2005

Terra Soft Solutions Inc. announced today that its PowerPC-based Linux implementation, Yellow Dog Linux, now supports the Mac mini and iMac G5. Yellow Dog Linux v4.0.1 is a Fedora / RPM-based operating system for PowerPC computers, offering an intuitive, flexible graphical installer, 1300 packages on 8 CDs (4 Install, 4 Source), a unified KDE and GNOME desktop environment featuring shared menus, applications, and user interface.

Based upon the 'Anaconda' installer engine, the Yellow Dog Linux Installer leverages automated, advanced hardware detection; provides on-screen help, flexible package selection, multiple install methods (CD-ROM, FTP, HTTP, NFS), default to ext3 journaling filesystem, embedded video testing, multiple ethernet and wireless port configuration, and automated partition creation.

Terra Soft - "Mac OSX is a great product, but if you desire complete control of your computer, prefer a common OS acrosss multiple systems old and new, Mac and PC, and desire improved performance on hardware you thought would never be used again --then Yellow Dog Linux is the best solution for you."
