I don't know a whole lot about Yellow Dog Linux but isn't it mostly based on
code from the LinuxPPC project, only with some minor tweaks, maybe a
modified (or new) installer and the promise of superior installation
documentation and support?

I would tend to consider that the behavior/performance of Yellow Dog Linux
wouldn't be much different from LinuxPPC's.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
