Very timely, Eric. Teachers are cleaning their classrooms this week, and
g4 Macs seem to be the most common thing to get the boot this year. I've
got all sorts of shapes and sizes here in my office, not just eMacs. I'm
curious about browsing on a PPC: what's the most up to date browser you
can run on Ubuntu on a PPC? what version of flash? java?
