My Brasillian friends are working with something they call Mubuntu. 
Basically it's just the Ubuntu installer with DeMuDi packages on top. 
Not difficult to do, just add the sources to your apt-sources list. Only 
watch out for the DeMuDi core packages, as the configuration they do 
breaks some of the Ubuntu nicities.

If you're running a "nice titanium", you'll be wasting a lot more time 
with Linux than you should, unfortunately. The amount of work, and in 
some cases sheer impossibility, to get a Powerbook (espc a newer one) to 
properly do such normal things as sleep mode, wifi and and accelerated 
graphics is pretty frustrating. (Mind you, this is coming from a guy who 
builds Gentoo multimedia systems on x86 all the time!) Makes you wonder 
if all that work just tuning the OS is worth it when a great many FLOSS 
apps can be made to run in OSX with at least the same amount of work or 
much less.

Another provocation? ;-)
