Darwin has packages, but not a ports system from what i've read. You might as well use Mac OS X if you are going to use darwin since there is fink, and you get Java in OSX.
I ran NetBSD on a sparc for some time. Its nice. I'm sure the PowerPC version is good as well.
If I were you, I'd just pre-order Mac OS 10.3 and run that. You can't beat commercial apps and open source! At least X86 BSD users can usually run Linux software including games like Quake, etc.

This may be a bit off topic, but does anyone know of a "real", current version of FreeBSD that will run on a G3 Mac? I've looked at both Net & OpenBSD, but I'd rather stick with one OS for all my PCs. I know, that Darwin is basically the same thing as FreeBSD and that very little has changed...but one of the main reason I love FreeBSD is because of the ports collection. Has anyone tried downloading the ports collection on a Darwin system and tried building anything?
Thanks, - --Brian
