Ubuntu MATE 14.04 for PowerPC

A PowerPC edition of Ubuntu MATE 14.04 is ready for testing thanks to Adam Smith from the Ubuntu MATE community!

Adam has uploaded the .iso image to OneDrive and it is available from the link below.

Adam says:

Those familiar with PowerPC will know that yaboot is the default bootloader, and that remains so here, but I’ve also added grub to make booting directly from an iso file easier. There is no need to burn a DVD!

You can use the following hashes to confirm the integrity of the ubuntu-mate-14.04.1-dev.34508-desktop-powerpc.iso download.

You can find Adam’s announcement on Ubuntu MATE Google+ community. So, if you have any questions or feedback I suggest you contact Adam here.

Thanks very much to Adam for taking this on and well done on bringing Ubuntu MATE to another platform!
