OSX to Linux?
So my MacBook isn't exactly new anymore. The hardware still works fine and it mostly does what I need it to do. But I can no longer upgrade the OS because the last several versions (including the ones that permit me to download apps) won't work on my hardware. And other software - like Firefox - can't be updated because it needs the later OSX to run. Now I'm not really sure I need the latest of any of these things, but it still sort of bugs me. As a result, I'm thinking about partitioning part of the hard drive and trying Linux. Any suggestions about good sources of information for potential new Linux users or any advice (pro or con)? I'm not a technophobe, but I really don't want to spend much (if any) time entering command lines or in whatever the Linux version of "Terminal" is? Does this make Linux a non-starter?
