    running on my tangerine iMac

    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?

    :eek:

    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.
