Also, I keep reading here about how it is rather painful to use if you have a low processing speed and/or less than 512MB RAM. I have both, unfortunately. Currently, 256MB on a Lombard 400Mhz G3.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Well, I've run OS X on that very same machine, with less RAM (192MB) and it runs fine. It's no speed demon, but It works well.

Most of the thoughts on OS X speed on older hardware is pretty subjective. I find the negative views generally expect OS X to be faster than 9, which isn't very realistic. OS 9 is a much "snappier" user interface on these older machines. It also takes only about 300MB where OS X is close to 2GB.

Once fully updated (10.2.5) you should find OS X to be fine on your machine.
