But since Stata does not distribute source code for any platform, what
are you going to do with an Intel-oriented Stata executable on a

of Linux, I imagine, as long as the hardware is Intel. But the
bigendian-littleendian issue arises when you go from Intel to PowerPC
or v.v. Without some sort of emulator, you cannot run an executable
compiled on the one chipset on the other.
We've got an older Apple in our office running Yellow Dog with SPSS
for Mac. To my knowledge, since SPSS doesn't support a linux version
we haven't done a comparison.
Given the basic structure of any *inx operating system I don't see why
Stata for linux won't work with Yellow Dog.
