One big disadvantage:
1. I don't know what the hell I'm doing. :-)

I suppose I could bumble my way through it, though.

I ordered SuSE PPC for my Mac yesterday. I need a new C++ compiler with 
better support for the standard and KDevelop sounds interesting. I'm going 
to see if I can't get all my Mac stuff onto my little 500MB hd, leaving 
the 2 GB hd for SuSE. We'll see how well SuSE supports the increasingly 
Frankensteinish Power of Tower.

Expect stupid linux questions to start pouring in on Friday.
