I enjoy using Linux as much as I enjoy using/working on Apple OSX, it’s natural and therefore I should be interested in making a Linux book on my Macbook, but for many Linux users this is a difficult discussion, since for most budgets it makes more sense to run Linux on less expensive windows laptops. (it’s also much easier than attempting to do this on Mac Hardware).
And until recently it has been difficult to boot Linux from a Flash Drive on your Macbook Pro.
Make Use Of ( one for my favourite sites) have explained and demonstrated a SIMPLER way to boot into Linux from a live USB stick on any Mac. Details here: http://muo.fm/12kFbkL
