    Linux for the mac is it good? will it help PC users and companies currently using PC's to swap to the mac. Nevertheless surely this is a good thing right?

    I have never used linux nor have I seen it in action so is linux for the mac worth getting?

    also I noticed a completely different design of G4 on their site hehe no where near as good as the apple desing (I think it was a G4 but have not finished reading yet)

    its good

    The greatthing about it is that its cheep to buy (comes with all the manuals) and its free do download if you can spare the banwith. Plus it comes with all the pro stuff you might want like the apachi webserver and all the firewall stuff you might need. Andd if you want more.. its also mostly free. But Linux will never replce my Mac OS :)

    How much RAM and hard drive real estate does a mac Linux need? Could it operated on an old 6100/66 w/16mb RAM and a 500mb drive (loaded onto a CD, of course)?

    OSX

    I have linux box running a DSL connection at work, it hasn't been restarted for about 8 months and it simply great.

    I use OSX and find it to be real powerful and stable as a rock (Only one Kernal Panic in the last 6 months)
