I used to use a macppc machine. It was slow. It's going to get only
slower, comparatively. Today phones are several orders of magnitude
faster. Or more precisely they have better blanced architecture for
desktop use. You can get phone with the display resolution of said
macppc machines. There were G5 tower machines which should be still
usable by today standards but they are quite rare.

The power architecture was shortly available in PS3 and is still
available in server hardware and possibly in some Cell based products
if any other than PS3 exist. That's not macppc, however, and does not
require a HFS filesystem to run.
