Are we likely to get more resources for powerpc work?
One way IBM seems to be trying to gain market share for power is by
its openness compared to Intel and AMD processors which are only supported
along with co-processors acting against the interests of the owner of
the processors to support DRM in the consumer market. This would seem to
make supporting power a good fit for Fedora.
Fedora already supports power. In fact, IBM has been helping to drive
Fedora on Power for years and has donated a significant portion of
hardware and people time towards that.
