imac g4 blob-stick-square

Here at the hack shed we have a new toy.

An old 1ghz power PC imac… the one with a blob, a stick and a square…..

At the moment it’s of very little use as the OS version doesn’t have a decent browser and.. well.. it’s a mac!!

We know we could probably push it up to leopard or something (whichever the last OSX version supported PPC) but we’ve decided it’ll be far more fun to get linux running on it.

So far we’ve looked at yellow dog and lubuntu PPC but only very briefly.

Stay tuned for more info but for now, have a gander at our new baby.
