MacMini and Linux
 
Has anyone attempted to put Linux on a MacMini

If so, was it extremly difficult? Thinking of getting one =)

I immagine the USB Only for kb and mouse might cause some linux distros to complain... Looking for tips and if you got nothing better to do referrals =)


(WARNING: above link is a referal for a free mac mini program)

to my knowledge linux works fine in mac mini (except wlan, maybe)
but so does OS X...
if you really need a linux desktop, kde and gnome are available through fink/opendarwin for os x (plus gentoo for os x has many packages, too). i wouldnīt want to install linux on a mac (unless itīs a protest towards appleīs policy)

I haven't tried it, but I don't think USB keyboard/mouse would be a problem. Mine are both USB only and I've been running Linux (several distros) for almost a year and haven't had a problem.

I've not tried but I found this awhile ago.
