Sugar has been ported by the major Linux distributions and many minor ones. There are many choices available for easy installation; but after first boot, their support for Sugar varies.  Search the internet for Linux Mac powerPC Install. Once you've found a version of Linux for your processor, search within to see if Sugar is pre-packaged for easy install and what support or discussions they've had. <!--Those stating educational focus may provide a better experience. But without published reviews, this is baseless bias. --> <!-- Two distributions leave powerPC unsupported: Sugar on a Stick and Toast ''aka Trisquel education distribution''  -->
