My friend has given me a Mac Pro and I want to use it as a media centre in my living room. Basically for playing movies, music and surfing the web.
So I want to format it and install the optimum version, of an optimum operating system.
I am aware that MacPro's can support a number of different operating systems such as Mac OSX, Windows or Linux.
I'm afraid I don't know much about macs, I'm a PC guy myself. But I really want to learn more about them.
Can you recommend an operating system that would be best for my needs?
Literally, all I want is to watch high res videos(hopefully1080p), play music and surf the web.
The specs of my mac pro are as follows:
Model Mane: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: Mac Pro 1.1
Processor Name: Dual Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed 2Ghz
Memeory: 5 GB
Boot Rom Version MP11.005C.B08
Any help would be very much appreciated.
