If history serves, the Power Computing hardware has a PowerPC processor, and
distros are sprinting away from that architecture at a world-record pace
(sadly, if I may editorialize).

Just a caveat for those thinking of giving it a home. Meanwhile, I've had
the best luck with Debian, OpenSUSE and Fedora on PowerPC hardware, and
there's always Yellow Dog (which is called something else, now that they put
all their proverbial eggs in the PS3 basket).
