Convert an old Mac to a new Linux

What can you do with an old Apple laptop or iMac that can’t be updated anymore?

You can completely uninstall the MacOS system and install a distribution of Linux. I did this on a MacBook Air recently that only had 2GB of RAM and a 60 GB internal drive. The system works incredibly well. The distribution that I chose was Ubuntu Desktop because it is most like the Mac.

To install Linux, you first need to download an ISO file from the Internet and install it on a CD  or bootable thumb drive. Okay, for most people, that’s not going to happen. So I am offering PMUG members to do the conversion of their old Mac to a new Linux for free. I do recommend Ubuntu Desktop.
