Hi -- Congratulations on your success! I presume you are speaking of
Ubuntu Dapper (version 6.06 or 6.06.1).

Canonical no longer offers "paid" support for versions after 6.06.1,
HOWEVER all the versions since are available, with "community"

Since Ubuntu makes two releases per year, there are two versions since
that one -- version 6.10 and version 7.04. The next release is
scheduled to be 7.10 (meaning October 2007).

If you need more information about Ubuntu on PowerPC, you will
probably get more focused support from the forums -- click on the
Apple PPC Users link in ubuntuforums.org to get to

General (non PPC specific) information can be found in any of the more
general areas, including this list.
