Yup. Try http://www.mklinux.apple.com/ - Linux for PowerMacs. They do it for
Suns too, apparently. And you can get all sorts of stuff for it, including
Netscape. There's even a site just for Linux Freeware,
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ , for people to play with. Great system.
I'm aware of a fairly large number of MOO users who run it at home. It came
free on a cover CD for the biggest and best PC magazine in the UK 3 months back,
That's kinda what I mean. Windows'95 is bigger and slower than Windows 3.1, and
still doesn't offer the power of Unix, or the ease of use of a Mac - or CDE on a
Unix box, for that matter. And *boy* is the Internet community pissed of at
I hear from a colleague who goes to these things, that Microsoft were quite
shocked by their reception at a conference over here last month. Sorta like
when the villian goes on stage in a Pantomime, I'm told...
So Chaco, look to your market!
