bob_shoggoth asks: "A while ago IBM released a royalty-free motherboard design around their PowerPC chips. Have any computers based on this design actually been made? I would consider a PowerPC computer for running Linux if I could actually find a reasonably priced one. Since Linux (and the BSD's) have such good cross-platform support, why do I seem to be limited to just the x86 platform when there is a market that does not need binary backwards compatibility?"
