Okay, so just want to seek some advice regarding running Python (with numpy, scipy and stuff) on either a Mac Mini or Power Mac G5. The Mac Mini was the mid-2009 release, and the Power Mac G5 I believe is the lower end of the last generation of it's kind. I'm thinking to switch to using the Power Mac G5 as my main programming machine for the next couple reasons. 1) The mac mini is becoming sluggish (because of all the stuff that's running on it, sometime it takes 2-5 second just to open up terminal). However, I'd like to continue to use the mac mini as my main machine (for non-programing purpose) because it has all the new stuff such as: iMessage and iCloud etc. 2) I have the Power Mac G5 just sitting around not doing much, and sometime it feels it runs a lot faster then the mac mini for some reason. So I'd like to seek the following suggestions. Is there a major difference between running python on either machine? If not, what is your best setup for running Python (with the newest version of numpy and scipy) on a the PPC? I hope it's not a silly question for wanting to use a older machine to run python than the relative newer mac mini. But since the machine is just sitting there, I figured I might as well convert it to a dedicated machine for programming. I'd very much like some input thanks.
