To El Cap or not to El Cap
So, I have the possibility of acquiring a Mac Pro 1,1. This will NOT be my main machine (I have a DP 2009 flashed to 5,1 for that). As everyone knows, these machines can normally only run OSX 10.7 Lion. However, there are hacks that can get this older hardware to run up to 10.11.6 El Capitan. Upon searching, I found a thread containing no less than 166 PAGES of information regarding this modification.
Whew... that's a lot of reading. Workarounds, etc, detailing up to the security updates for Meltdown/Spectre, etc... I guess what I'm asking is: it worth it to do this hack to run a more modern version of OSX on older hardware if you already have a few machines that run it natively? Or should I just keep it a Snow Leopard/Lion machine and install Windows 10 (the wife likes using Windows as that's what she uses at work).
Suggestions from those whom have done the hacks and have been living with them for the last few years?
