  1. Recently acquired my old G5 after I gave it to my Dad some 6/7 years ago to replace his ageing Windows XP machine. Somehow he managed to continue using the G5 up until 2018 when he replaced it with a new laptop. I eventually got round to picking up my old computer and forgot what a nice machine it is. I would love to have a use for it but of course browsers on 10.5 are long unsupported and even TenFourFox runs like garbage. I know there are Linux distros compiled for PPC but most articles/threads on that are very old and I was wondering if there was any 'fairly recent' support, decent browser support is probably most important. It's a late '05 DP 2.3Ghz with 6.5GB of RAM and I've got a spare SSD I can throw into it. Once upon a time it had a Gefore 7800GT (iirc) in it but I sold that off when I gave it to my Dad and put the original 6600 (??) in it. Is it worth replacing the 6600, I doubt I'll be able to find any G5 graphics cards for reasonable money but I wouldn't be adverse to flashing an old PC card if compatible. Sorry lots of questions! Thanks in advance
