      I have a MacBook that originally ran OS X 10.4 (2005). Apple no 
longer provides an OS X version that will run on it. I am presently 
running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with no problems. I can run the latest versions 
of both AOO and LO. I can also run Calibre and Sigil which I use for 
converting *.odt files to ePUB format. I can use the latest wireless 
security as well.
