Linux "We reported a few days ago that we had Linux booting on the Intel-based Macintosh. We have been looking at Linux on this hardware some more, and we are glad to report that we now have a full-fledged Knoppix distribution working, complete with the X Window system. We are releasing the first pictures of Knoppix 4.0 running on a 17-inch iMac Core Duo. The X Window system is shown running at full resolution (rather, fuller resolution - 1472x900 - notice that the bottom right edge of the KDE dock is cut off). Most (but not all) aspects of the hardware seem to work, but we have yet to analyse exactly what doesn't work and assess how much work it might take to get such things working."

First you flame anyone claiming a Mac to be more expensive than a Dell, and then you flame anyone wanting to install anything but OSX on a Mac? If Macs are cheaper(and better designed, faster, and better in every other way), why wouldn't Linux- and *BSD-users want install their OS of choice on them?
