1) Binary-only software.  If you need something proprietary for which
there is not yet a free substitute, the odds that it is available
compiled for PowerPC Linux are slim.

2) One freakin' mouse button.  That's a deal-breaker for me.  And I
don't wanna hear about external mice; it's a LAPTOP, I wanna use it on
my lap, without lugging around a rodent and a playpen for it to roll on.
