    Reviving an old G4 iMac?

    Anyone have experience with PPC distro's of Linux?

    Currently I just use it as a picture frame running a slide show of my digital camera shots, but figured I might be able to get a little more functionality out of it with an OS I don't mind having connected to the network. Would also make putting new pictures on it easier and I might be able to run a nicer slide show program.

    Thoughts? ideas?
    not speaking for all and if I am wrong I never said it.
    (plz note that is meant as a joke)

    What about Lubuntu?

    I've been out of the 'nix circles for some time now, but remember reading that this (and Yellow Dog prior) were pretty good.
