How to set up Ubuntu Linux on a Mac -- it's easy and free
,----[ Quote ]
| Why would you want to run Linux on a Mac? There are probably a few good
| reasons -- learning about a different OS, using software that's not
| available on the Mac platform, or for a Linux class in school. While you
| can create a bootable partition on your Mac and boot Linux from it, I
| prefer to do things the lazy way. In this short how-to post, I'll
| demonstrate how I installed Ubuntu Linux 9.04, also known as "Jaunty
Can Ubuntu 9.10 Outperform Mac OS X 10.6?

| Of the 26 tests shown in this article, Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" was the
| clear winner in 12 of the 26 tests while Snow Leopard had won a handful and
| the rest of the tests had results that were too close to call or unchanged
| between the Apple and Canonical operating systems. Ubuntu 9.10 can certainly
| compete with Mac OS X 10.6 when it comes to the performance, but of course a
| few of these tests do show performance regressions compared to the earlier
| Ubuntu 9.04 release, an area where Ubuntu developers could improve.
| Additionally, not all areas of the system or hardware combinations were
| tested, such as with the Intel Linux graphics performance struggling compared
| to Mac OS X. On top of that, the Ubuntu Linux installations had NVIDIA's
| proprietary driver manually installed, where as the "out of the box"
| experience on Ubuntu does not provide any 3D acceleration for NVIDIA
| Stay tuned for our large Mac OS X, Linux, OpenSolaris, and BSD operating
| system comparison in the next month.
