    I'm curious about this:

    Can Leopard Server, be updated with unix subsystem files from modern linux or bsd? Like the unix server components, to essentially end up with a up to date, or near up to date server inside 10.5.8 leopard. Ubuntu and Debian at least still offer PPC builds, so can those files be used?

    Yes, but it would be difficult and could result in an unstable system.

    It might be a worthwhile project for someone with the time and know-how to take on. I'd be interested in following the progress of such a project were someone to take it on.

    I wish I had the unix skills to attempt this. I would love to make a best possible server OSX for PPC. Mainly to try on my xserve, but I bet others would be interested in it too.
