I've been swimming upstream my whole life and I don't intend to stop
now. The iBook is my first Mac and has been quite an adventure, despite
eight years of Linux experience and two years with gentoo. But it's all
running smoothly now and the iBook is a sweet little machine.

A few of my ebuilds have made it into the main portage tree and you can
be sure that they will contain ~ppc from now on if they are feasible. If
there is anything I can do to help, let me know.
