Setting up "Hackintosh" for art and music ?
DH's company was raffling off surplus computer equipment, and we were "unlucky" -- DH's ticket was called in the third round of drawings. All of the laptops and mac desktops he was interested in were gone. He ended up with a computer we've nicknamed "the beast" -- all he knew when he got it was that it had a huge case and two monitors. Probably nobody wanted it because it really does take up a lot of space. Well, we popped open that case and it's got a quad core cpu, 8 GB memory, 2 video cards, and a TB disk. Not bad for a 20 buck raffle ticket!
He's busy turning it into a "hackintosh", and I want to set it up as a place for the kids (13 and 15) to do art/ music. They already use Adobe Sketchbook and Audacity on the old PC, which is a lot less powerful than this guy. DH doesn't do art/music on his Mac, so I need to do a bit of research to figure out what we should put on it. Where should I start?
