As most of you are aware of, MintPPC is a Linux distribution based on Debian Sid and Linux Mint, with an LXDE desktop manager. It has been made lightweight to be able to function well on G3,G4 and G5 processors.
I saw your plans for building a laptop with a PowerPC e6500 CPU. This is very interesting! On such a machine, Cinnamon will work very well. I think it would be very cool to have Linux Mint Debian Edition, with Cinnamon as desktop manager, ported to PowerPC, for possible use on your future laptop. If there is any interest in this, I would be able to provide this.
