    GUI on old Mac?

    Just wondering if there is Linux OS that supports a GUI for an older macintosh. Let's say a 68040 processor. (33MHz) I think I might actually upgrade it, but then again, I might not.

    Ok, I am upgrading it. Just found a Performa 6360 logicboard. So I guess I'll be trying Yellow Dog.

    You can install Debian on a 68k mac, I did once with X but it was horribly slow on my IIvx (33mhz 68030 with 8megs RAM). NetBSD can also be installed for 68k, I currently have it on my IIvx and it runs at almost decent speed with X.

    You can install OpenBSD and NetBSD on that mac :P.
