I recently got my hands on a blue-and-white Power Mac G3 tower, for about $30. The thing came pre-loaded with Mac OS X 10.3.9, which I quickly replaced with OS 9.1 to run the older stuff. But for the OS X side of the machine, I'm considering upgrading it to OS X 10.4. Before I do that, though, I need to know if anybody here has had experience running it on an older machine like this one.
Apple's sysreqs page just tells me I need at least a G3 processor and 256 MB of RAM. I've got the RAM and the disk space (extra hard drive), but is it going to be "worth" running 10.4 on a 350 MHz G3? Or would it be too slow to be usable? 10.3.9 ran decently, but struggled with things like Firefox and some Classic applications. Does 10.4 add a lot of stuff that would hog my processor?
