    Question Best 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

    cya,

    Specs:
    MacPro 3.0Ghz 16GB RAM, 4x256 Vid, 30''cinema display
    I suggest yellowDog Linux if its possible to run on that.

    Otherwise OS6 is pretty cool for being old..
