View Full Version : [xubuntu] Xubuntu on a MAC

September 23rd, 2009, 05:27 PM
Hi There,

I was given on old IMAC Power PC G4(700MHZ) and I wanted to install xubuntu on it as it's not very fast, it has 384MB PC133 ram which I am upgrading with a stick of 512MB and a 20 GB ATA/ IDE HDD which I will also upgrade to a larger size.

My Questions ar these:

1. Will Xubuntu install on MAC hardware OK?
2. Is Xubuntu the right choice or is there more lightweight distro that will run with such limited resources?
3. Is there a distro that has a feature similar to ready boost where I can utilize external memory storage as ram so that it maigh run a little faster?

Bearing in mind that it will only be used by my son for playing games on the internet.
