Compatible OS for the iMac Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz

Need to know what OS is compatible with an iMac Intel Core 2 Duo – 2.16 GHz with 2 GB Ram. I have never owned or used a MAC computer. I have always used a PC running some version of Windows. I am also so curious why it seems that Mac's use such low Ram? ~ Thank you!

The machines with that processor came out in 2006.

I'll pick the 17" and give the stats on that one.
