NetBSD/macppc

NetBSD/macppc is a port to Apple's PowerPC-based Macintosh computers with Open Firmware. 

Supports most Apple Power Macintosh computers with PowerPC (G3/4/5) processors and Open Firmware.

The X Window System is supported on all MacPPC systems. Most ATI graphics adapters and some NVIDIA graphics adapters are supported by accelerated X servers. The graphics adapters not supported by an accelerated driver can be used by X in frame buffer (unaccelerated) mode, at the boot resolution and color depth using the wsfb driver (installed by default).

Almost all PPC Macs introduced after August 7, 1995 are supported. There is a complete list with details.
