Apple's OSX is only half-decent because it is built on top of Unix, but crippled so that Apple can keep you in their wall-garden and collect your money for services.
If you all want to truly upgrade switch to a desktop-focused Linux or Unix distribution. They are quite easy to install as long as there are no hardware support issues. I use Ubuntu, but Linux Mint is also a good option. If you want to "reinvigorate" an old computer, swap out the harddrive for an SSD and install Linux!
