on a clamshell iBook SE 466 firewire, Tiger runs pretty well. :)

i used Xpostfacto to install Mac OS X 10.1 on a Powermac 9500/132. the
overall performance is surprisingly good. the only pain is the
optimization after installing any package. it takes ages to complete. i
also tried to install Jaguar, but the Powermac looks happier with Mac
OS X 10.1.5.
