    Here's a link to the page where I found it, it's actually running an unaltered version of Windows 2000 using a Microsoft networking technology that apparantly didn't catch on.

    I seem to remember than NT 3.51 would run on PPC chips, no idea about Win2k.

    Now that I think about it the iMac was probably running VPC...

    I thought that M$ had come up with an unpopular alternative:rolleyes:

    If it is just acting as a graphic terminal client to show the program running on the Windows 2000 server, then there is a good chance that the iMac is NOT running the Windows software.

    It's running a terminal client program, it is not running any Windows software. The server is most likely running the program and showing it at a remote location.

    Even your link says this is probably the case.

    Should be more Remote Desktop Client info at http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/rdc/default.asp
    but I didn't find the Terminal Services stuff on a quick check.

    because it is an origional iMac, someone could have opened it up and connected the monitor to a computer running Windows 2000. It is possible with the origional iMacs (not the newer ones)
