I have an old G4 powerbook around  which I got on ebay for 50 bucks.
My solution: Get rid of OSX Tiger, install Debian.
Everything just works, the system gets security updates, 
huge repos of up-to-date free software.

Sure, Leopard (the last version of OSX which supported PPc) 
is not Tiger, and  still a viable option - for now. But that
is bound to change rather sooner than later, so why wait.
