It will be a bit sluggish on that G4, as well, some parts of iLife 09 will not run at all

Apple - iLife - System requirements for iLife ’09 on the Mac.

Saying that Tiger works fine on that G4 (Ihave got one) and iWork 08 works but is a little slow

Without some "modification" - you can't install Leopard on any G4 less than the 867mhz. Saying that...I have leopard on my 1.0ghz G4 emac and it runs ilife09 OK - not great. Once it loads, its OK. The operating system (leopard) itself is noticeably slower than Tiger too (IMHO). I have 1GB memory on that emac too. Its tolerable, but I don't know if I recommend it.

LeopardAssist will allow you to install it on sub-867MHz computers, but it's probably a TERRIBLE idea! I'm running Leopard on a 1.33GHz iBook G4, and it can barely play movies a lot of the time. Fortunately, I have very simple needs, so it doesn't bother me too much.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

So should I just get leopard? Or should I buy the Mac Box set? I actually honestly have no need for the Ilife but I just wanted to be sorta complete.

I would recommend installing Tiger if you can get your hands on it. It's technically possible to run Leopard, but you'll have the world's slowest computer.
