at college there are some PPC's....but my teacher said that linux for PPC
still lacks many things....I work as network dude inside the campus...maybe
I can get to some of them to test it....but untill the years end they will
be working at full capacity...after that they will be "disabled" or we will
throw NT Servers into them to do simple domain authentication...it's
because AIX (their "official OS") is almost killing the support
personnel...they don't like to deal with it.... :-)

what kinds of data formats?? for gfx storage? datamaps? tiles? sound?
(please be more specific, say which well known formats are supported,
probably you guys are also creating your own file format, as the allegro
dudes did.....)

option ....that's true??
