    [PPC] Re: Testing 13.04 Lubuntu PPC

    I have been running 13.04 since late January and have always been impressed. I abandoned 12.10 for it. 12.04 will be my main squeeze for a while yet but 13.04 is very promising on the horizon.

    [PPC] Firefox 19 on PowerPC

    This is not a question but rather a calling to all PowerPC Ubuntu users to see if you're having the same Firefox 19 issues I am.

    It works fine for me other than many images get a blueish tint over...
