Can I install Linux on an iMac?

Yes. You can install Linux on Intel-based Macs using the same discs that you would use on a PC. You can either install through Boot Camp, or through booting from the CD.

On older PowerPC Macs, it can sometimes be trickier. Ubuntu, the most popular distro, no longer supports PowerPC processors officially. However, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and Debian will still work. A custom Debian installation is probably the best idea for a G3 iMac; Fedora and OpenSUSE should be fine on a G4 or G5.

What was revolutionary about the IMac?

The original iMac was an all-in-one design that introduced individual style and personality to computers, which made them much more appealing to people for personal use. For the first time, people would actually show off their computers, rather than hiding them under their desk. Also, the iMac accelerated the adoption of USB as a de-facto interface standard in the PC world, and was the first mainstream computer design to drop the use of the floppy drive. It depends on who you ask, but one of the things is that a whole computer is almost as thin as a flat-screen LCD.

In fact, i saw somewhere a picture of the iMac with the caption: "Hey, where'd the computer go?"

What is so special about the iMac?

An iMac is an All-in-one computer where all the components are located behind the screen, making it very slim and elegant.

Apple tries to make the iMacs very easy to setup and the only cable you need is the power chord, everything else is wireless.

iMacs are very fast and compares pretty well with the Mac Pro in speed tests.

iMacs are also very quite machines, you won't be hearing the fans wind up even during processor heavy operations.
