Which is better? OSX or Ubuntu?

Don't reckon anyone has a couple 128MB PC100 DIMMS they would part with so I
can get this iMac to run OSX and Ubuntu at a decent speed. All I have is
64's and 256's. It won't support the 256's and two 64's is FREAKING SLOW AS
HELL with Ubuntu (works fine, just slow). I have OS 9.0.3 installed and it
crashes constantly (I think it is corrupted - came on iMac and have no CD's
to reinstall).

And i've got a 333mhz iMac G3 on which OS X is close to unusable,  
whereas Ubuntu isn't quite a speed demon, but GNOME runs good enough!

Dapper's GNOME should run in about 128 mb. A lot was done on that  
front in the last months :)

Well, I suppose thats a preference thing again :)
