The iMac G3... well, I got it off eBay for like $100, and it came loaded with OS 10.4.11, but not much else. So I added a few things to it. Here are the specs:
- Mac OS X 10.4.11
- Mac OS 9.2.2 (both for running in Classic mode and dual-booting)
- PPC G3 @ 600MHz
- 1.0 GB RAM memory
- 60 GB HDD
- DVD-ROM (internal)
- White Apple Pro Keyboard
- Kensington 2-button mouse with scroll-wheel
- 10/100 Ethernet (connected to a switch, connected to my router)
- Photoshop CS2
- Firefox browser (along with other optimized builds; TenFourFox, FireFoxMac (furbism's build))
- Clasilla browser
- OpenOffice.org (because it's freakin' free!)
- ...and many more!
Do I miss the 6100, HELL YES! And while I still wished that it could've ran at least Yellow Dog Linux 4.x or some other obscure 'distro' of Linux, my new iMac G3 will pick up where the 6100 left off.
And if you're curious, I have long since confirmed that my 'hybrid' Windows XP/Vista Kaleidoscope scheme works flawlessly under Classic!!! I know I released it on the MacNN forums, but unless anyone ever asks for it from me, I'll likely just keep quiet about it.
Again, Happy New Year! (and then, I disappear from Blogger for another 2 years!)
