Apple has sponsored an OSF project to port Linux to the PowerMac
platform. The first release was late last month.

Linux on PowerMacs runs over the OSF/Mach microkernel and is
referred to as Mklinux on the linux newsgroups (comp.os.linux.*).
Unix and Unix-line operating systems andt hat currently run on Macs
include: Mklinux, NetBSD and MachTen.
You can get more information about Linux, NetBSD/mac68k and
MachTen from the following URLs.
Mklinux - http://mklinux.apple.com
NetBSD - http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/mac68k/index.html
MachTen - http://www.tenon.com
In addition to these operating systems, you can also run DOS and
Windows applications on Macs. Price is about the only reason I
might still get a PC clone over a mac.
