Why not?  I ran it on a Pismo for the last year and loved it.  That's
typically with X11, a dozen rxvts, Safari or Camino, iTunes, and Yahoo
Messenger all open with me writing software.

The specs on the system were:  G3/400, 512MB memory, 40GB disc,
bog-standard ATI Rage Mobility video.

Quite well, from what I've heard.  It's also possible to run MacOS 9
inside of MOL on Linux, and possibly MacOS X inside of MOL on Linux.
