PowerPC and older Macs only! I'll start:
My main PPC machine now, since I gave the PM 7600 away last year.
Showing off a bit! I will upload the rest over the next few days!
I think I take the cake of Showing off your CPU type in the most ways (ill have to dig out the rest of my PowerPC about this Mac shots at some point heh)
oh we are doing intel now? here is 10.4.1 running on a emulated 486 (well its a 486 alright iv just tacked on all the needed x86 instruction set extensions needed for 10.4.1 to boot )
I'll contribute some screenies:
OS9 on Yosemite Mac Pro. LOL!
Back in the day I think I MAY have once snap a screenie during the somersaulting open/close folder window.
LoL, one of the bests reason to run an old PPC Classic Mac is to have fun with Kaleidoscope.
Ill one up yours with Mac OS 9.2.2 on a OS X el capitan hackintosh (I now use a 2006 Mac pro but at the time i took the shot i was on the hackintosh)
I have Kaleidoscope on my Mac IIci. Makes System 7.5.3 look like OS9.
Here is my main PPC Machine. Slimmed down my collection for space purposes but this one is staying for a long time
My PPC computers, the PowerMac G5 and the iMac G5, both running 10.5.8 and 10.4.11 and both have the Mountain Leopard theme Installed.

The two most powerful PPC systems I have. The dual 2.7 G5 and of course the quad core G5.
DLSD! Need to update to 10.5.8 tho!
How is the Dual Core 2GHz in terms of stability & reliability? I might get one for 45€
Screenshots to come
Here's my Power Mac and PowerBook. Both machines have SSDs for their startup disks; the G5 has a 64GB SSD paired with a 1TB storage drive, while the PowerBook has a 256GB SSD in it. The PowerBook is still my main machine to bring between the classroom and home, and what I do most of my grading and lesson planning on
I'm playing with my 9600 this evening. On the upside, using Photoshop 6 to change the screenshot file formats for posting here is lighting fast. I think PS6 is one of the few programs that can actually use both processors in this computer(they are not even seen in OS X).
On the downside, the new forum software is still abysmally slow on this computer. Back in the days of vBulletin, I could pretty comfortably browse this(and most other sites) in desktop mode even on a 604-based computer in Classilla. Xenforo will work okay with TFF on most G4s and even faster G3s, but Classilla seems to only really be happy in Xenforo on a fast OS 9 system like a 1.25ghz MDD.
The page renderings are also really weird.
(This entire post typed, edited, and uploaded from illustrated 9600).
All my PowerPC machines are currently retired, but today I decided to give my 466 MHz Clamshell a 5th life.
Took out an old Transcend PATA SSD and installed mSATA Samsung 840 EVO with fresh Tiger install instead. Added an USB WiFi "n" and it will be the kitchen computer. We'll see if it's capable of doing the job...
Maxxed out the RAM in the G5.
I have a powerPC that I haven't used in awhile, but here is a screenshot of my Quicksilver circa 1999.
Powerbook 17" 1.67ghz.
Ah why not.........
Just bumped the RAM in my PMG5 from 2.0GB to 2.5GB. I'll be installing Leopard Server on it momentarily as well.
