Old Macs. Since 2006 all Apple computers have the x86 CPU architecture.

I started with Red Hat (was it 5 or 5.1) back in 1998. Tried everything, loved Debian the most - stable. Apt-get FTW. Trouble is, I got bored of screwing around to make little things continue working. Connecting digital cameras was a particular thorn in my side.

At first, you should use the most popular distro, because that one 'usually' has the best support community. I still think that learning the command line is important - plus you may be able to get a job as a Linux Sys Admin. The most used Linux in industry is Red Hat by far. I have Oracle's linux due to my job. Its a clone of Red Hat.
