My brave old 1.5 Ghz Mac mini is about to be put to OS X pasture as it's no
longer able to do much of anything that is useful.  I'm hoping to replace my
exceptionally ancient 700 Mhz P-III machine I keep around at work for
testing and what-not with my mini and I'm looking for recommendations for
what flavor of Linux to use.  The one and only version of Linux I had
installed on a PowerPC processor was Yellow Dog Linux, is still the main
player in the arena?  Is there even an arena to speak these days?  The
machine won't require a GUI of any kind. I see several different flavors of
Linux are supported but I'm looking for some real-world experiences.  What
did you use and would you choose the same again?
