Can I Run Linux on Mac?

Episode 1741 (1:32:00)

Manny from Lincoln, NB

Manny is looking to get a new MacBook Pro. Leo says we're only about a month away from the new Mac laptop announcement, so it'll pay to wait. What can he do with his old Macbook? Put Linux on it? Leo says that putting on Linux is doable, but there are always some issues with Apple Hardware. The old the machine the better, and it would pay to google the distribution he's looking at and Macbook Pro and see what issues pop up. Leo's favorite for the Mac is Manjaro.

What about checking the health of his battery? Leo recommends Coconut Battery. It'll tell the capacity and how good the battery life is. Once it gets down to below 50%, it's time to look at a new model.
