    Question Ideal Distro for PPC?


    I have been enjoying Fedora Core 6 on my cheapo Compaq for about a month now and about ready to make the leap to linux on my main machine, a PowerMac G5 (dual 2.0, 3 Gb Ram, GeForce FX 5200 with 64 Mb running 2 19" displays, Superdrive, 640 Gb harddrive space between 3 drives). I tried installing 'Yellow Dog Linux' about 6 months ago and was not impressed. I have played with Ubuntu's LiveCD, but it too did not do much for me. What do folks think is the very best for the PPC? Also, is the software out there for Linux on the PPC? Will I be able to find things such as Flash plugins, MP3 plugins, etc?

    If you have been enjoying FC6, why not use it on your main machine as well?
