I've got Panther running fine on my tangerine iMac. I'm typing on it at this very moment. :)

I have upgraded my processor though, but it's still a G3 (500 MHz, instead of the original 266 MHz). But what I really appreciate is the Firewire port that came with the upgrade. Now iTunes and my iPod work great with my old iMac too! :D

Hm... I never dared to try to install it on 10.0, 10.1 or 10.2... maybe 10.3 is the lift it needed?

i've got some old imac's, but newer than the bondi imac's, i've got a 350 mghz, 7 gig hard drive, and 128 megs of ram, and currently using 10.3.2 runs great, a little slow, but its good enough to use safari or basic games

I installed Mac OS 10.2 on a Bondi Blue rev A iMac with 96MB of RAM, it was rather slow. Later I installed OS 10.3 onto it and it works much faster, I'm sure if I upgraded the RAM it would work even better.
