The latter (although you have a strange way of putting it), unless you pop up the hood and do some major hardware tweaking....Gary King said:Can the iMac be used as a regular monitor? Or will an iMac always only work with Mac OS X / Linux running on the monitor?
What I meant when I said that you had a strange way of asking is that the OS has nothing to do with it. This is true for pretty much any all-in-one or notebook from any manufacturer. The iMac G5 display will work for any OS that is compatible with the HW.
