Ganesh Venkateshwara writes about his experiences with Apple hardware and software on the iBook G4 and his eventual migration to Ubuntu Linux.
But # 122948 was first reported on 2007-06-29!
There have been two releases, including the much-touted LTS release for 8.04, with the bug being silently carried forward, with it’s importance in Launchpad as Undecided.
Guess that’s what they mean by Long Term … waiting for Godot!
The second Long-Term Release (LTS) of Canonical’s GNU/Linux distribution is officially released. You can learn more about it here.
This version will receive updates for 3 years.
Ubuntu follows a regular 6-monthly release cycle.
The next release is scheduled for October 2008.
Ubuntu 8.04 beta is now available for testing and bug-reporting.
Remember boys and girls, it’s a beta… and is not recommended to be used in production environments!
To quote Texstar from http://www.pclinuxos.com
Here is a little MiniMe 2008 (296mb) you can play with and customize the way you want. Comes with 126.96.36.199 kernel, Alsa 1.0.15 and a very basic KDE 3.5.8 desktop. This is a minimal LiveCD that is bootable, plus it can be installed. Add in your own background, window decoration, localizations, preferred applications and supporting libraries to fully trick out your desktop. In addition you can remaster your own custom version of PCLinuxOS. Have fun!
Window decoration is Linsta Squared:

Background comes from kde-look.org:
Credit to: Yanike, Anortix, sparX CG and Jeff Rash for making the original theme.
I moved Internet setup and Clock setup to a Utilities folder on the users desktop. Only one question at boot to select the keyboard. Other utilities
include Alsa sound configuration, Ati/Nvidia installation tool (requires network connection), Make LiveCD GUI, Make Live USB key and Redo-mbr with os-prober for adding other grub boot entries into your grub menu. Root password and user setup moved to first boot after installation to harddrive. Also included on the livecd are ndiswrapper support files supporting various wireless network cards and more.

Again, this is a stripped down version of PCLinuxOS. You will have to customize your desktop the way you want with your own preferred applications through the Synaptic Software Manager.
