It's a good site -- but one cannot help notice the characteristic Church
of Steve total blindness about operating systems: They refuse to
acknowledge that anybody, ever, runs any operating system besides MacOS
on any Apple Macintosh hardware.
Let's say you're really a hard-luck case, and all you own in the way of
computer hardware is an early PowerMac 6200 that you've tricked out with
64MB of RAM.
To sum: lowendmac.com would have you believe that _the last decade
never happened_, for that beast, and that you're stuck with MacOS 8.5.
Which is sad, because you could certainly install Debian or Xubuntu or
NetBSD on that puppy and have a perfectly reasonable, modern system.
But the words "Linux" and "BSD" appear nowhere on the site -- even
though there are _reams_ of information on the Net about running those
on older Macs.
