well it was 40 bucks from the second hand store so...
is there anything i could use it for other than browsing image boards?
some have said to install gentoo or openBSD but i think it may just be a hardware thing limiting it
(its g5 imac powerpc for those wondering)

Debian and Ubuntu also support PPC. Give it a try. If you're just web browsing then it should still be a good machine, just make sure you upgrade to SSD.

i have ubuntu on a cd but everytime i insert it the computer just spits it back out, ive tried putting it in then rebooting to see if it would work but it had the same result, i would like to download it but at the speeds im seeing on even small downloads it would probably take the better part of a day just to download it
would it work if i could get it on a usb stick somehow?

>would it work if i could get it on a usb stick somehow?
USB boot can work but it requires you to go into Open Firmware and manually boot. Are you sure you're using the correct ISO?

im not sure, ive had the disk for a while, all i did was download it then put it on a disk, ive gotten it to work with a different computer once before but it wasnt a mac
ive tried changing the settings for disks in the system preferences but im not even sure it has a program to read the disk in all honesty

You need a specific media for PPC, the x86/x64 you have won't work

In addition to these, I recommend you get Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard to dick around with. Tiger is an amazing OS and still has a supported browser and can still get newer software with tigerbrew.

Source-based distros will give you newer software but you will have to wait a few millenia for it to compile.

well currently i have OS X leopard (10.5.8) and most of the programs i download are incompatible with it for some reason
other than net browsing i would like to emulate some of the games from Macintosh garden but most of those are only compatible with older architectures, and im having trouble with the emulators as well as some of them wont even install

>well currently i have OS X leopard (10.5.8) and most of the programs i download are incompatible with it for some reason
Because they aren't universal binaries. They're Intel-only.

Install Tiger. Tiger has Classic mode and most of that stuff should Just Werk.

Torrenting is pretty much the only way to get it unless you want to pay for a copy from eBay. Just make sure it's PPC and not Intel.

Literally every fucking program crashed with a smoke "puff" for fucking no reason at all. You don't get an error code, you don't get an error message, you don't even get to save. Fuck Apple, and fuck their abortion of a toy OS masquerading as a real OS.
