Thread: Best Alternative OS for Mac ?
11-22-2003, 04:41 PM #1BarZouleGuestBest Alternative OS for Mac ?
Hi ! I just got an old PowerBook 1400cs from a friend. I'm wondering what to do with it. I heard it was possible to run alternate OSes on old Macs, like the BeOS, or maybe AmigaOS. Anyone have heard anything precise about that ? And what about Linux ? and NeXt ?
I know some ppl here will find it strange that I want to run anything else than the MacOS, but I don't really need this machine, I only want to experiment with it. And MacOS 7 is a bit too restrictive for me

I suggest yellowDog Linux if its possible to run on that.
Otherwise OS6 is pretty cool for being old..
