Apple appears to have selected the name iBook for its forthcoming consumer and education-oriented notebook Mac, better known by its codename, P1. The name 'iBook' has been assigned to the company as a trademark and follows naturally from the name 'iMac'. An earlier, much-fancied name was 'WebMate', given the machine's anticipated role as a portable Internet access system -- iBook retains that idea, but also ties the machine into the professional PowerBook line.

Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Hardy Heron

It is possible to install the free recent version of Ubuntu Linux,8.04 Hardy Heron on the Clamshell iBook. The PowerPC Desktop version needs at least 256MB RAM, i've installed it without problems on a 300MHZ Clamshell. This LTS (long time support- 3 years) version comes as a Live CD, that means that you can test it before you install it on your harddisk.
