Chimera Linux test ISOs available for ppc64le

Chimera Linux, an upcoming Linux distro with a FreeBSD userland so you don't have to choose, now has downloadable test images for ppc64le and x86_64. The little-endian Power images, which we care about here obviously, are available both as straight-up console (which can be redirected to the onboard serial port) and GNOME-or-console flavours, and require a POWER8 or higher. The GNOME spins (screenshot at right) use Wayland by default but also allow X11 with a bootloader configuration. There's still a lot in flux, but it's impressive the OS is this far along, and certainly offers something more substantial to the Power community than the usual distro dance. For more info, see the FAQ, or download ISO images from the download page.
