Does anyone know of a free and open source OS for PPC that isn't linux or BSD?  Feel free to post about it!

As I posted earlier I said I had found an imac.  At a local parts depot, they take in all sorts of hardware from everywhere.  Closing businesses, whatever.  It never matters.  I thought I was picking up a G5but it turns out it was a core 2 duo.  The screen has a large fragment out of it so it has to be replaced but I will be going back tomorrow to pick up a cinema display and I will be checking the other imacs for one with a good screen.  I do not want to replace this one as it has a core 2 duo clocked at 2 ghz and an ati X1600.

This may make it off topic to talk about on this forum but I am excited about it nonetheless!

When you get this rolling you should consider a model that is basically a modern amiga as soon as the hardware is proven out and tested.

I have put MorphOS on both of my powerpc systems and it is way better than anything apple could have done.  Web browsing is there and where ever thge community is hiding these guys are dedicated and educated badasses.  I love it.

Does anyone have a 10.6 iso? I have gotten so far now without giving apple any money. I ADORE this hardware, but I hate what the ompany does. Obviously 20 bucks is silly to flip over, but another thought is to sell what I have and buy new but thats not for this forum.

If you have some knowledge of unix and linux systems, having a powerpc mac with something like 10.5.8 or 10.4.11 isn't just a fun project, but it should be treated as a matter of security.

Bash, as well as other shells, can be installed / updated and security patches can be added from macports.  Because most modern computers are intel-type CPU's (AMD, Intel) viruses are also rather rare if not non-existent.  While gaming and internet use is limited away from flash items like youtube, most tools from unix/linux have ppc ports, such as KDenLive (a video editor and my personal choice), and the use made of the powerpc processor is made rather well.  Video editing can also be easily done with just an old version of final cut or a new version of avidemux (if you know how to use it).

Also as a note using mactubes or youview for youtube effectively removes any flash scare, however somewhere there is a webpage containing flash 11.5.  I have the file as well ,so I may upload it at some point.  The only reason to have the plugin is to plug the security hole in the OS that is there.

Any other issues as such should be researched thoroughly.  I am currently working on making minecraft 1.8 work.  My first issue is java 1.6  I have the files for it and supposedly it will work fine (openJDK ported to PPC OSX) but I honestly have no idea where to put what and how to do any of what needs ot be done.  Though by christmas I should have the latest minecraft!  Excitement!  I will post how to do it once I figure that out.
