The Mac Mini G4 I bought came with OSX installed. As far as I can see, there is not any good use of it, but I'd like to ask anyway:
Software, even its is significantly slower in responsiveness then MorphOS. However, in my experience modern PPC Linux is slower. So its good trade off.
Until 2004 it was "bread and butter" of yappies and even easy productivity.
I recommend getting last MacOS X Tiger as which software can be installed is dependent on
MacOS X version.
Read this great guide in Mac forums
Even some retro gaming - e.g. Civ3 and Civ4 existQuote:
Do you dual boot with OSX? If you do, what's the reason?
First of all, follow this guide https://dreamolers.binaryriot.org/dualboot.pdf
to get multiboot, its not out of box. Unless going the PDF explained ways, MorphOS install
will wipe out MacOS X.
Existence of better productivity software then even in Linux abeit limited in versions, as it was software wise abandoned in 2009 (e.g. MS Office 2008, iLife 09, iWork 09 ...) as well as mentioned
Ten Four fox browser (FF backport fork) even Wayfarer is catching up and being actively developed.
I can recommend Macintosh Garden website https://macintoshgarden.org and PPC section of MacRumors forum
