Xubuntu rocks my PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet)

Hello all,

Congratulations, again, on a job well done.  Though I had some
difficulty getting Xubuntu installed on my PowerBook G3
(Wallstreet/PDQ), once there it turned out to be a sweet, sweet
operating system.  A beautiful desktop, a clean interface, a wireless
card that worked out of the box (okay maybe I'm just lucky on that
last one) -- I love the work you've done.

I've been watching this project for several months, since Breezy was
first released.  I'd been using xfce and then fluxbox for a bit, since
my PowerBook is a somewhat old Mac, 233MHz and harboring 256MB or RAM.
 Regular ol' Ubuntu just wasn't going run well on this baby of mine.
So when I learned about Xubuntu, I subscribed to (and lurked) this
list, put away my PowerBook for about 6 months, and looked forward to
the day Xubuntu would be officially released to the world.

Love it. It looks good, and so far it runs well on this old Mac o'
mine.  Thank you for all your work; I'll be sure to add my experience
to the wiki in some way or another.

Best Regards,

Harold J. Johnson
