    Phoronix: With An Out-Of-Tree Kernel Patch You Can Finally Read/Write To The SSDs On Newer Macs

    While Apple computers once ran well with Linux, that's not been the case in recent years particularly for MacBook Pros but now really all newer Apple computers have become a mess on Linux. There's been really messy issues in trying to run Macs on Linux. With MacBook Pros from recent revisions, it's now only finally possible for Linux to read/write to the solid-state drive if using an out-of-tree patch...

    I'm just impressed they managed to yet again turn an industry standard into an incompatible hack.

      I think that's the company motto at Apple.

        Can we just leave Apple alone? They sure are doing their best to be left alone, why none can leave them alone.

            Note that this patch is for 2018 and later, not 2016 as stated in the article. I have run Ubuntu on my 2016 MBP at work for a long time

                Even Apple repair guys are telling their customers to not buy new mac's.

                Apple's goal is apparently a locked box, from production to failure.

                  Apple used to make hardware that I wished other vendors to emulate. Now all I wish is that they keep themselves as far as possible from them. That soldered SSD that cannot have its contents recovered after a mobo failure (they removed a rescue connector on the board), just to sell some cloud crap, was the last straw.

                  You must suffer from a serious case of Stockholm syndrome, to be loyal to a company that do so much anti-consumer actions.

                    Completely untrue - for many Macbooks manufactured as early as 2015 and later this is a problem which makes it impossible to run the Linux kernel. You are just lucky not to have one of the effected models.
