Default new member-need OS help - 11-23-2013, 10:11 AM

have mini9 hackintosh which was originally XP. Can't upgrade and want to ditch the mac OS and go with linux. This is just the basic model and all I need it to do is e-mail and basic web search, etc

what's the best OS for me and how to install?

Linux works - Linux Mint is a popular choice. ChromeOS can work too. Just use the documented method of installing from USB. You'll probably want to delete the existing partitions first - the install should allow you to do that.
