Got the same machine and managed to coerce Debian testing on there. Had to tweak the xorg.conf, but it's running KDE (with openbox instead of kwin for window management) and I can't really complain. Built the latest rekonq from source and it a completely usable internet computer (depending on your feelings about flash, of course). MorphOS would be more tempting with a lower price tag, but such is life.

And in case anyone is curious, I (stupidly) paid out the rear for this machine and I'm not getting rid of it until it melts. I don't care if it's next job is over-sized doorstop, for that kind of money I'm dedicated to making it work.

So it's good to know MorphOS has G5 support - this tower would make a lousy door stop. Good to have options.
