Booting Linux On New Apple Hardware

I ran across articles that point to the fact that Apple (with new hardware) is making it difficult to boot into Linux. This would seem to be a perpetuation of Microsoft and Apple attempting to "elbow" Linux aside. Whether true or not, I do not know.

My viewpoint is simply a reflection of reading passing headlines. I don't know whether Microsoft and Apple are actually attempting to frustrate the adoption of Linux as a mainstream operating system. If they weren't; my guess would be that both Microsoft and Apple would have been working with the Linux community to have a (universal) secure boot option that would work with virtually all operating systems.

Ehhh. They said the same thing about UEFI Secure Boot when it first came out and look at it now.

AFAIK T2 is still very new, give it some time. "Currently" doesn't mean forever.
