Potentially in big-endian mode, but you'd still need to have platform support for what's on board, and I don't know if the motherboard supports anything but little-endian POWER8 (given that all the supported Linuces are all little-endian).

It's possible they could run in virtualization, though for me Mac OS X would be more useful, since in my case this unit is supposed to be a follow-on from my faithful Quad G5.
smit happens.

If only they'd keep SheepShaver's virtualization support on PPC Linux up-to-date...
