Hey there,

So my old computer, my mid 2011 mac mini has been retired for about 4 months now, and I have not had a use for it until now when I want to use it to simply stream my spotify music into my hifi system via a 3.5mm to RCA adapter.

A while back I completely formatted it's HDD and installed Windows 7, so there is no recovery partition. The Windows install on there has a lot of junk on it and i'd like to start fresh, but it's not an activated copy and I don't have a Windows 7 key.

I've heard that apple let's people download their OS for free, but I don't know how it works if you don't currently have apple software running on your machine?

How would I go about that, or should I use linux?
