I suggested to the folks at LinuxPPC that they include it in their
upcoming version 5 release CD. (Which will be more or less compliant with
RedHat 5.1 and glibc libraries etc.) If people haven't checked it out -
it is very nice, boots into KDE, and really cooks on a G3. Check it out at

I am interested in trying to compile pd and gem for LinuxPPC maybe next
year - no time right now.

I have to agree on that one. I would love to see a port to OS X Server
and would be willing to lend a hand in any little ways I could. If the
SoundKit and MusicKit have survived from Next, that would make the whole
affair even easier still....
