    Hi all,

    I'm a Mac newbie, only had one for around 1 and a half months, and I am wondering is there anyway to run Linux on Mac's? Obversely you can run Windows but I have no idea if you can run Linux on them. So is there anyway easy way to do it or can it only be done by people who really know what they are doing (this does not cover me:eek:)?

    This doesn't answer your question, but why do you want to? A lot of Linux apps are available for OS X, and the underlying system is similar.

    I know that they are similar and all but I just like Linux, and I planning on putting the same form on all of my computers in the house. As good as OS X is I just want to be able to have Linux on the computer as well.
