Yeah, but that's _GNOME_. If you want a G3 Mac to really sing, use
Xubuntu (xfce4 desktop). Also, take a little responsibility and decide
for yourself what to start, and what not to.

Well, until the spontaneous freeze-ups start, and such. (My two iBooks
are much more stable with Linux -- and it's nice to have a real
filesystem back.) What you probably really mean is: OS X has a slick,
integrated set of proprietary apps with a carefully similar look and
feel. (Your HIG consistency, my monotony. ;-> )

Frustratingly inflexible. ;->
