"When most people think of Linux, they think of running it on an Intel x86-based (or compatible) PC. That's largely due to the perception of Linux as a threat to
Windows systems. However, Linux distributions are often able to run on computers built around other processors, and Windows isn't the only graphical OS standing in
the way of wider acceptance of Linux--there are plenty of Macs out there, too." From CNET.com.
