Linux on Intel iMacs


Seems Linux hackers don’t waste time getting their beloved OS running on whatever hardware they damn well please. (from Engadget)

However, if your goal is to just run an OS other than Mac OS X, you’re in luck. The enterprising team at the Mactel-Linux project have claimed at least partial victory: they were able to get Gentoo Linux to boot on an Intel iMac. Obviously, they’ve still got some work to do before they can do anything useful with the OS, but it’s a major step.
