    I will soon be getting a Powermac G4 Quicksilver 2002:

    1Ghz Dual G4
    1Gb RAM
    160Gb HDD
    nVidia GeForce 4 MX 64mb.

    Its only $200 which I think is fairly decent for this old Mac, and it will only be used as a secondary computer.

    My question is: Tiger or Leopard?

    I don't need Leopard, but I've kind of grown onto the new Finder, Spaces, and Quick Look. Also, I might want to use Time Machine or Boot Camp in the future.

    Point being, I would like to load Leopard on it, but I won't bother if it won't run properly.

    What do you think?

    Leopard or Tiger.

    I would suggest Leopard.

    Wow!

    I walk away for a snack and 3 replies!!

    I've been a long time member of Mac-Forums, but I might just start frequenting here!

    Nobody over there has replied yet!

    Thanks for the advice, and I'm glad Leopard is a good idea, I don't think I could go back to Tiger...

    I agree with Leopard. Also, you realize you can't use Boot Camp, right?

    ha right sorry, thanks.

    My first Mac was Intel, so I keep forgetting about the certain setbacks of PowerPC Macs.

    Oh well, that's not as big a deal as everything else.
