The toilet plunger iMac? I cannot think of a fucking worse steaming pile of shit. The very day they were announced, I told them, they will not stack well in garbage cans.

Best Mac? Mac Pro. 2nd PowerMac 9600. Third Quadra 950.

Oh right, the is a worse pile of shit. The Hindenbook PowerBook 5300.

sure, it's worth a try, but it depends on what hassle you're having I guess

personally I prefer sticking with OS 9/X because of commercial software and it's just nice, 10.4 should still have a hobbyist-mainted homebrew repo too last I remember

but you could do it with either, both have perfectly usable Unix environments, and GNU/Linux offers a more universally straightforward approach at the cost of being... kind of boring, if you ask me

Nothing linux-land runs ok on these things, even debian command line is slow as shit.

MorphOS is ok. Haiku may run on it one day.

Get tenfourfox and stop using safari, order a 60GB pata SSD from china and clone onto it, get a high end G5 tower, upgrade it, add an SSD, and compile the entire tigerports tree, probably want to get a gen 1 xserve to keep it all on for ease of use with binary management, since your G5 will be running compiles non-stop for the next eternity or two, hunt around for a motorolla aftermarket 1.5ghz upgrade kit and pay to have it swapped out by a rework company, then throw yourself in the dumpster because you're hoarding garbage
