    Default G4 Mac - Tiger or Leopard ?

    I want to re-install OS X clean on my MorphOS machine's second hard drive to have both MorphOS and OS X.

    Specs are:

    PowerMac Digital Audio (originally 450mhz)

    64MB Radeon 9000
    PPC G4 1Ghz (Sonnet upgrade)
    1GB Ram

    It currently has Leopard but its going a little slow.

    Is Tiger or Leopard more recommended for the specs ?

    I would use the Tiger! I have Leopard on my Dual 1.42 GHz, that is really OK, but with 1 GHz, Tiger is much smoother...

    Unless you really really want Leopard for whatever reason, I'd go with Tiger. It's lighter-weight and has Classic mode built in.
