"MacBook Pros come with some very nice hardware, but some people want
more. Some people want Linux.
Whether you’d like a more open and customizable operating system or
simply need to dual-boot in order to access certain software, you
might want Linux on your MacBook. The thing is, MacBook Pros are also
pretty closed-down pieces of hardware that make installing other
operating systems difficult – Linux more so than Windows. Boot Camp
won’t help you with Linux, even though it doesn’t mean it’s
impossible. Here’s how to do it."
