Argh, just as I'd decided not to buy a PowerBook as they don't dual boot Linux very well, along comes a Mac VARPC! Back to the decision-making process for me.....

I wonder if it will work on my regular PC that runs MacOSX under VMWare, or hopefully a Linux version will come along soon (hehe, maybe even for the PPC-based PS3 that runs Linux).

I can't believe VA even wasted their time working on a PPC version. Pretty much all Mac users I know have already ditched their G4's (dunno anyone with a G5, they're all laptop people). I'd have thought the MacIntel version would be an easy enough rebuild, but porting to PPC, wow!
