PowerPC Edubuntu


Our iMac is starting to get pretty slow when running the kids flash-based games.  This seems to get worse as new flash games are created.  (I think that these flash apps are not being optimized for low powered computers.)



So I was curious to try Edubuntu to see how well the iMac performs.  The Umbuntu distributions include the ability to boot directly fom the CD to try it out, so this would be perfect way for me to try edubuntu.



 Unfortunately, I was not able to get either our iMac or iBook to boot from the CD.  It would just hang after selecting the boot options.
