    Best OS for G4?
    Hey everyone, I just picked up one of these:

    iMac G4/700 (Flat Panel) Specs (iMac Flat Panel, M8672LL/A*, PowerMac4,2, M6498, 1873) @

    The only reason I got it was for my daughter to use to get on (for those of you who don't know, it's basically a learning website for kids and it's heavily reliant on flash). I have completed a fresh install of 10.4 and the only things I have done are install flash and register on the website. The website is so slow that it makes it pretty much unusable.

    What would be the best option for an OS to install that will suit my needs? It literally needs nothing more than a browser that is capable of loading this website. TIA.

    I am afraid that todays Flash is going to be like a slide show on that old G4 Mac or even a PC of that time frame. If it was not for the need for Flash it might do, but even my faster G4 systems drag with Flash on heavy flash sites.

    Sorry I can not give you better news.
