Hi all, After opening my eyes to Mac OSX Panther/Tiger, I am eager to try a new OS. I want to run it on the Powermac in my sig. I want you guys to help me choose an os(not windows). The ones I am thinking of are: Solaris, Beos(spelt wrong I think), FreeBSD, a type of Linux or anything else you guys suggest. Also I know litteraly nothing about these OS'. Can you guys tell me advantages and disadvantages of each OS, also it MUST have a user friendly GUI. Also is installing easy?, how big do I have to make my partition?, what do I use to make a partition?, can I partition my drive without earasing the files I have on OSX?, if i dont want the partition anymore can I get rid of it without reformating? Thanks fo your help Patmian212 EDIT: sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.
