Revive almost dead MacBook?
First: Pardon my english, itīs not my mother tongue, so spelling mistakes and other mistakes may occour ;)
My MacBook is about to die, and I cant afford a new one. Yeah, I could get a cheap laptop with preinstalled Windows 8, but i seriously cant stand Windows 8. I am a noob to the Linux-world, although I've used the Linux distro red hat (and tried Ubuntu) at uni. As far I as have understood OS and Linux is kind of releated through the Unix connection from the early days, right?
So, well. I have this old, white MacBook (bought in early 2009) who runs mountain lion. Itīs very slow, and go into "freeze"-mode quite often. I'm thinking of installing a Linux distro alonside OS X. My question is:
1 - Do ypu reckon itīs worth a try, and maybe will make my mac last a little bit longer?
2 - Which Linux distro is the most similiar with OS X?
Nice day to yaīll :)
