Sometime early last year I decided I’d like to get a PowerBook. Ideally, one dual-booting Mac OS and Linux. I spent several months saying “I don’t really need a laptop,” but I really started to like the idea after a while, and Katie started to like the idea too, and this January I went so far as to contact TerraSoft Solutions about pricing. TerraSoft maintains their own PPC Linux distribution, Yellow Dog Linux, and their stock in trade is selling Macs preconfigured to dual-boot Mac OS and Linux.
I decided not to buy one then for two reasons: We had the wedding coming up, and I figured Apple was likely to upgrade the line by summer.
Well, the wedding is next weekend, and Apple has just announced upgrades to the PowerBook line.
It may be time to start looking at PowerBooks again.
I’m surprised that Powerbooks and iBooks are outstripping G5 desktops. Weird.
A lot of the guys at work have OSX and Yellow dog on their personal machines. It seems to be a hit. The only person I know to bitch about dual boot, has RedHat I believe.
The above belongs to me. Gideon just tore through a curtain and I was a wee bit distracted.
