Okay before you guys/gals answer that, I have a set of guidelines that I
would like used in answering that question. 


**Note: I am very new to Ubuntu and have never used OSX, hence the reason I
am asking**




1.)     Ease of install - including installation, setup and configuring all
connected devices

2.)     Overall ease of use - User-Friendly

3.)     Ease of installing additional hardware (Post OS Install)

4.)     Ease of uninstalling no longer used hardware (Without OS Re-Install)

5.)     Ease of installing new software/games/etc.

6.)     Ease of uninstalling no longer used software/games/etc.

7.)     Overall security and resistance to Viruses, Trojans, etc.

8.)     Ease of removal of Viruses, Trojans, etc.

9.)     Availability of GOOD software/games/etc.


I am asking this question SPECIFIC to use on an older G3 iMac (Tangerine)
with a 400Mhz. PowerPC Processor, 128MB Ram (May upgrade this to 256 if
needed), 10GB Hard drive (May upgrade this to 40GB if needed), Internal DVD
Reader, external BenQ Dual Layer DVD+-R/W w/ Lightscribe, Micro Connectors
iMac keyboard w/ 2port USB hub built in, Kensington Orbit USB Trackball
Mouse, USB External 120GB HDD formatted FAT32 (Used for backing up files
from both the iMac and Windows PC's.
