Blogs / Sites and everything else.

Recently our friends from PowerPC Liberation – http://powerpcliberation.blogspot.com – celebrated a birthday.  Like me, these guys tirelessly work to ensure our beloved PowerPCs stay relevant.  We wish them all the best and many more years of PowerPC related blogging to come.  Some of their focus has been to keep Mac OS X running for applications that do not require internet, for internet material they are 100% Linux for security reason.  Keep your eyes on PowerPC Liberation because they continue to provide good information about how to transit from Mac to Linux and all the Linux related applications that you just can’t live without!

* Tech Laggard – http://www.techlaggard.com/ – I really like this video, its totally worth watching.

* The Mother Ship – http://macmothership.com – Awesome Web-Site with great information about Macintosh and Lisa.  The Galleries are great and don’t forget to visit once you click the link, which displays historic flyers, ads, brochures, etc. The information spans from 1976 to 2002…it’s fascinating!  Mac Mother Ship has done a beautiful layout on their web site. Way to Go!

New Blogs for PowerPC

I found a good source for PowerPC information today and am pleased to provide you with 2 more web-sites that have my “seal of approval!”

 http://ratedwin.com/Blog/Blog.html – This site seems to have just opened and I like the idea of sharing experiences and how to use a Mac OS X with a PowerPC processor in the year 2012.  It’s basically almost the same idea as Mac PowerPC…both give functional tips on how to get the most out of Mac OS X system with your PowerPC.

http://powerpcliberation.blogspot.com/–  This blog is a good source of information about the PowerPC.  It’s very technologically informative and the writer is very clear to point out that he is focusing on sharing tips and info about operating systems for PowerPC, including Linux as well as Mac OS X.  He also provides great tips on how to continue updating the Apple OS.  If you are looking to get the most out of your PowerPC (Linux/Mac OS X) this is a good place to start!  Highly recommend saving this one in your favourites!!

It’s really good to see that PowerPC users have started producing and sharing more tips and experiences.  In this post, you have now found 2 blogs that help bring the breath of life to your PowerPC.  One focuses on the Mac OS X system and the other in Linux + Mac OS X….the choice is yours!

Keep PowerPCing guys.

*RJCalifornia http://rodolfohernan20.blogspot.ca/search/label/powerpc PowerPC Macs got one more blog to help us sharing information and experience of running Mac OS X.  This blog just started posting about PowerPC and already have great material.  I also liked the idea of posting in Spanish and English because that would help a lot of readers that use google translator.  Thanks RJCalifornia keep up the good work!

*TigerOSX Tiger is Here – http://tigerosx.wordpress.com/ – This is like my “sister site / brother blog” and I visit it almost every day.  Recently, the blogger took a vacation but he is alive and posting!  His post about  AppleWorks6 is really good material/tutorial!   I would say this blog is a must not just for Tiger but for all PowerPC users.  Leopard users should watch out…because the Tiger is HERE!
