    I'm a little puzzled, if your thinking of shifting wouldnt it be because you have tried it and therefore already know, (unless it's the social contract that attracted you)

    That said, why not start with their new release... it's been a longtime comming Debian 3.1 (Sarge)

    The PowerPC is a risc processor developed by IBM-Motorola-Apple. It has most noticeably been used in Apple Maintosh. Though even Apple has recently decided to change over to Intel processors due to power and heat issues in their laptops.

    Debian Pure

    I'm new to Debian also. I've tried it in the pass but didn't stick to it. This time I was deteremined to hang in there and work with it. But I did things a little different. Just a little. Check out http://debianpure.com/ . It a fully Debian compliant distro with the added benefit of coming with most of the programs folks want right out ot the box. That is to say, Flash, Java, streaming video, and audio can be used on first install. Plus, one can use Official Debian packages/repositories. I've got it installed on a test box. Been working with it for a few days and if it goes as smoothly as I think it will, I'll be installing it on my main PC. Give it a shot.

    I've seen a few others mention this install method.
    It certainly looks like a nice way to get a rich desktop.

    Anyway, glad to hear it worked for you.
    Nice to have you among the Debianites.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
