Makes sense actually, I mean why would you want to install something else on such overpriced and under powered hardware?

Question Fact Check from OMG! Ubuntu

According to the OMG! Ubuntu Blog, you still can install Linux on an Apple with a T2 chip. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/11/...ant-boot-linux

If anyone is interested in fact checking with their own Apple device, I am sure many would be interested in hearing about it.
