Hey, I'd love to see the history of Yellow Dog Linux. It has been my entry into the world of Linux _and_ free as defined by GNU and the FSF, software I wanted to look up which release I was probably using back then, when I first installed it on my Powermac. If someone has that info and would be able to contribute it to this Wikipedia-entry, I'd be very grateful and even offer you a beer or two if you ever visited West Germany :) Greetings, Patrick Mon Apr 24 00:44:16 CEST 2006
"and other well-known Linux technologies such as the GNU C Library, GCC, XFree86, and Linux." Linux is a well-known Linux technology?
"three commercial versions - boxed with manual, support and t-shirt; and whiteboxed with no documentation" and where's the third version?

--- (The closed nature of Apple Computer has traditionally made reverse engineering of such components difficult.)
AE is not working (exept with the reverse engineerd driver) because broadcom has not released information about the underlying chipset. Their choice, not Apples. Same goes with ati's and nv's graphic cards.
I propose merging this and Yellow Dog Linux together. Actually I think we could just delete this page and redirect but I'll go with whatever other people think. -- Vdub49 22:54, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
