Any new world PowerMac(iMac and newer and Powerbook G3 Lombard and
newer) can run Linux or NetBSD easily. You just need a PowerPC
specific port.  Debian's is very good.  Fedora had a recent PowerMac
port as well.  I've run Linux on Old World macs as well like the
PowerMac 9600 but they are not really viable machines any more.  G4s &
newer are very usable tho.

Running TDE requires it be recompiled and tested on Mac PowerPC hardware.

Any intel Mac can use the x86/x64 ports so there isn't anything extra needed.

I have been hoping to have time to test it on my iBook Clamshell but
haven't had time......
