There IS a PPC version of OS/2, but it isn't generally available.  At one
point I think it was available for (very) special order from IBM.

But everyone knows the only real PPC OS is MKLinux, which should be called
PowerLinux.  I really wish PPCs were generally available, i.e., not just
through Apple.  

Distributed.net is probably bringing them some business either way, too.
