On September 3rd, 2015 Joseph asked Hi Matt, I have the opportunity to install Linux at work on a 5 year old iMac rarely used due to its age. My gut tells me I should go with Ubuntu Studio as it has access to just about every type of creative and office software imaginable upon installation. I see this as an opportunity to grab a few entry level users with varied needs. What would you install on an older system collecting dust that gets used maybe once a week? Hi Joseph, I definitely think you???re on the right path for getting more life out of the old Mac. I recently did some testing with a 2010 Macbook Pro (6,2 version) and Ubuntu MATE. It???s more involved than simply installing Linux onto a PC, but it???s totally possible. Unlike Macbook Pro laptops however, the process should be a bit easier with the iMac.
