Fedora has announced a ppc64 Fedora 16 beta last week. The announcement can be found at the following URL:
There are many improvements between the Alpha and Beta for ppc64. Many of them revolve around automated console detection for IBM ppc64 hardware. The desktop is also improved and we now have a functioning Firefox.
This is a community-based effort and as such we encourage folks to participate. The best mechanism to speak with the team behind this effort is via IRC, where we hang out on freenode in #fedora-ppc.
Give it a try!
