While most people are getting a new Nokia N810 or a EeePC, I opted for a much cheaper techie gift. I have been wanting a beater laptop to lug around when I needed to. Something I could afford to break or lose or whathaveyou. Well, a friend was selling off his old 12 inch iBook G3 500 very inexpensively, so I picked it up. Now I have a little mac to thump around on the train and whatnot when I want to. Right now I have OS X 10.3 running on it but will soon upgrade it to 10.4 and see if and how that works on there. I also want to repartition and install some form of Linux. Anyone have any advice as to which distribution would work best on there?

Oh, and does anyone know if Linux will run an airport car yet?
