I was wondering about bunging this:

on a 'stray' PPC MacMini I have that is being remarkably unproductive
right now.

I don't know how 'close' a Linux build of RunRev gets to the code that
'talks' directly to a processor, so don't know whether the Linux build
of Studio 4 will only function on an x86 processor.

I am torn between reinstalling Mac OS Tiger (which has gone 'sour' -
Yes, Mac OS X can go sour, as can Windows) and PPC Ubuntu, and then
either Studio (cannot install Mac Studio as is already on my G4 cooker)
or Media as a 'toy' for the country cottage next spring.

Either way, will install:


which, along with RunRev are, for me, the indispensables.

sincerely, Richmond.
