I have a G3 Blue and White running Debian because I don't have the time to tweak a real-time kernel for it right now.  Sometimes I use ecasound on the command line for mastering from my analog mixer.

Thanks - I was thinking more of command line stuff I guess.  I will  
probably try to load Ubuntu on my old G3 iMac as an experiment, and I  
assume I will be able to grok the GUI and use apps, etc.  I want to  
learn lower-level stuff so I can maintain my own system, etc.
