The Linux kernel and Mac hardware

There is an interesting subset of Linux users that prefer to run it on a Mac. Yes, a Mac. That might seem odd given how Apple is known for its closed ecosystems and high cost hardware, but the Linux on Mac folks really do exist out there.

But how well does the Linux kernel support Mac hardware? LWN.net has a “state of the union” article for Linux on the Mac that could be quite helpful if you are thinking about installing Linux on your Mac.

Note that LWN.net usually requires readers to purchase a subscription for $7 per month, but this article has been made public. So you can read it for free, courtesy of Lukas Wunner, an LWN.net subscriber. Thanks, Lukas.
