Currently, we only have 32-bit.
As with most of FOSS Projects, the lack of manpower is the main reason 
why this is not a full option project :) nothing is prefect and we have 
had defeated lots of challenges. Our developers got busy with real life 
and Israel had to take the burden of learning development and help.

So, you see, having a PPC image at the moment is kind of an overkill. 
But who knows? maybe in the future if we get more help from other 
people, we might go for it as Israel himself has - AFAIK - a PPC :)


Thank you for your interest :)
