Red Hat hopes for Linux on Intel Macs

Booting other operating systems on Apple Computer's new Intel-based Mac is tough, but Red Hat hopes they'll make it happen with Linux.

Red Hat spokeswoman Gillian Farquhar confirmed last week that the company hopes to help its developers figure out how to get Linux working on the new Macs. "That's definitely happening," Farquhar said of the effort, though it hasn't gone far because the Linux seller doesn't yet have any of Apple's new machines.

Fedora, Red Hat's free version of Linux geared for hobbyists, already runs on earlier Apple computers using PowerPC processors.
