View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Ubuntu Xubuntu on iMac G4?

April 1st, 2011, 10:16 PM
Hey everyone,

So I just received a iMac G4 for free and I'm trying to get it going for my mother.. She's pretty computer illiterate and just needs something simple for web browsing and checking email.. It's currently running on Mac OS X Panther, It's really bogged down and slow, everything is outdated and I can't seem to get it to work properly and I don't have any disc's for it. So rather than messing with it I just thought it'd be better to install Ubuntu or Xubuntu?

I heard Xubuntu is better for slower machines with lower specs? Which do you prefer, and how do I go about installing it on the Mac??
