Here at LinuxWorld I noticed that one of the vendors was using
a Mac 6100/60 as a demostation, but I didn't investigate whether
it was actually running Linux or not. I just thought 'Cool!'
to myself, and went on in my search for Free Stuff(tm).

Of course, since that model's a PPC, the fact that the skin was a
Mac's may be unimportant.
