Hi guys,

Have an old HTPC running windows 7, running an older version of Kodi.

I wanted to change the OS, but I see that Kodibuntu is unsupported? Just wanted to know what you guys are using and is recommended?

1) Windows 10 with Kodi?
2) Linux (Ubuntu) with Kodi?
3) Anyone still using Kodibuntu?
4) Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance guys.

I have been using Win 7 & Kodi for the last few years.. Serves my movie experience very well..

Several options to choose from including:
- OpenELEC
- Remix OS

Can you list hardware specs? That'll make it easier to suggest recommend suitable.

How old a PC? Whats the RAM and Processor? I too have an old one with about 4GB ram and C2D processor. I upgraded Win7 to Win10 a couple of months back and run MPC-HC for movies and Foobar/Gaana for Music. Never really tried Kodi after putting my Raspberry Pi aside.
