    Anyone know if there is a Windows themed Linux distro for PowerPC? Doesn't matter if it's XP, Vista or whatever. Looking to run it on my PowerBook

    Lubuntu has the familiar task bar and start menu at the bottom but all flavours can be customised to appear that way.

    Yellowdog Linux was PowerPC. I think there was also a version of Solaris for PowerPC.

    Cinnamon is really heavy compared to LXDE. In fact, I'd say there is no comparison, LXDE will run way way better on a Powerbook.
