Ubuntu on My Macbook

Filed under
Ubuntu

I have recently acquired a brand new Macbook (2.2 GHz, 1Gb RAM). The first thing I did with it was to resize the OSX partition using Boot Camp to make space for Linux. Now my Macbook dualboots Leopard and Ubuntu.

Before deciding on Ubuntu 7.10, I have tried Mandriva 2008, Fedora 8, OpenSuse 10.3, and DreamLinux 2.0. Not one of those distros made all the Macbook components work out-of-the-box.

Everything now seems to work as expected. Running Linux on a Macbook feels like having the best of both worlds.
