Linux and Mac Questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I would like to know what is the best linux for my computer. I am currenty using wireless internet and I know that some linux doesn't support some wireless card. I am using a motorola wireless G pci card. I am new to this so please select a user friendly and yet awesome linux for me please. I also would like to know if it is possible to boot a Mac OS on my current computer using intel celeron even though I do doubt it but it might work I guess.

Hey there,

I would personally go for the ubuntu version.
It supports wireless internet.
It has a nice user interface.+ it's user friendly.
Well secured and lots of updates available for it.


And in a way it is possible to boot a mac OS on your computer but i leave that to the experts to help you with that

Mac OS X: www.osx86project.org
Linux: I'd use SuSE. Great for noobs.

Edit: F'd up the URL.

I second the ubuntu.

Almost any wireless card can be used on any distro. Some just auto-detect it. If you are new, you want to make sure the card is auto-detected.
