It looks like support for Apple’s PowerMac G5 was added to Linux today. That’s nice, but I’m not really sure why you’d spend the extra money for a G5 over an Opteron if you’re planning on running Linux. The interesting bit was Linus’s reply; apparently there were a couple small bugs that he had to fix after merging, but then he said:

Anyway, with that fixed, it will compile and appears to work on the G5. Thanks. Although I did see it hang when I inserted a USB keyboard (in addition to the X problem). Hmm.

So Linus has a G5 handy. His or OSDL’s?
