We had this older Strawberry iMac around. My stepson, Brett, had been using it, but the hard disk was damaged, and it kept locking up with Mac OS X. I tried to install Fedora Core 4 Linux for PowerPC, but it had a bug in the install engine, so I installed Ubuntu Linux instead. It went right on. The machine now seems to run faster than it did with it's originall version on Mac OS 8.0 on it. The hard disk was reformatted, with the damaged spot being worked around -a nifty little utility. So, we have another computer that works quite well. I need to find something that will let a USB Wireless adapter work with Ubuntu, and then we can find someone who'll get good use from it.
I have class tonight, and I think we might have a test, so I need to study. Not that it really matters; it's a take home test.
Mark Shuttleworth, thanks for Ubuntu.
