I have a lot of questions

1) What is the best linux distro for a Mac? I have an iMac 333MHz.

2) What is the best linux distro for a powerbook 100 MHz?

3) Are there any Mac OS X look alike themes for any linux distros?

4) Is there anything like a taskmanager in linux so as to force-quit some applications?

Thanks in advance

Mandrake 9.1 is an excellent distro with a lot of hardware support.

3) There are so many Aqua themes for various window managers and programs like GKrellm and media playing apps that it almost hurts!
I made one too, for Fluxbox. (Problems with the Freshmeat upload atm though )

4) You can use the terminal/console command to list the processes and then kill them, or send various signals. Man top, ps and kill.

Man top, ps, kill.

Really, top or ps will get that. ps -aux will get just about everything.
