    Need help with a Mac G5. I have one I want to make available here at my coffee shop for the customers. It had OS10 on it but it got switched to Linux. I want to make it able to get online for the customers and what ever else they would like to do. Any and all suggestions please!

    You could reinstall OS X 10.5.8 Leopard with TenFourFox, TenFourFoxBox for specific websites, webkit for Leopard with ClickToPlugin for 360p YouTube-Video, iTunes, Office'08, LibreOffice encrypt your Admin-account and make the GUEST account open for the public.
    Sorry, but otherwise no idea about Linux for PPC

    If your coffee shop regulars are online social media hipsters,
    they'll quickly lose interest in the performance & capabilities of the older PPC software world.

    An in-house, old school retro multiplayer game server might be kinda cool.
    But whether Linux-based or PPC-based is cross-platform enough, I'm not tech enough to know.
