And, FWIW, we have quite an active user base for Debian on PowerMacs and
I would eventually get all these user reports if something breaks.

I work a commercial Linux vendor myself, but I find it a bit frustrating
when some people think Linux development should care about commercial use
cases only.

The charm of Linux and free software is that it works well on old hardware
and hacking on these old machines is still very valuable for educational
purposes and as a hobby.
