Hi, I noticed that you have ceased to provide 32 Bit PowerPC ISOs. It's
also clear that this was nearly unanimous since you went through with it,
but I am very disappointed.
I understand your reasoning, that 32 Bit
PowerPC machines are mostly very old Apple Macintosh machines, and that's
true. I have three of them, along with other older x86-32 boxes. I often
get these machines brought to me, and they are always running a fossilized
version of Mac OS X, usually Leopard.
Firefox isn't even
available for these machines anymore on their native OS. I love Fedora,
and I always have, I left Ubuntu for it back when Fedora 9 was current and
never looked back. To put a Debian base on these machines, to me, is a
travesty, and Debian is all too focused on their experimental builds that
use other kernels right now anyways. I am writing, obviously enough, in
hope that this will make you reconsider support for 32 bit PowerPC
machines. You don't need to offer support of course. All I ask for is a
network installation CD and current packages.
Us PowerPC users
are not dead yet, and those old Apple macs can still prove very very
useful as a Linux box, especially as servers, as I know very well. Please
don't abandon users like me who already feel abandoned by most
distributions. I understand if you decide to reaffirm your position, but
your user base for 32 bit PowerPC was significantly larger than
