Linux and MBPr

The beautiful and wonderfully talented Docker Core member, Jessie ‘FrazelleDazzel’ Frazelle has a wonderfully detailed guide on her blog. It outlines how to install Debian ‘Jessie’ natively on a Macbook Pro retina. It steps through how to approach a clean install or partition of SSD, breaking the EFI into a usable section and then installing Linux.

There are a few caveats with Yosemite installs due to the LVM now being used as the boot partition. These are listed on the rEFIt page linked within Jessie’s article.

I am yet to give this a go as I am a single work/home Mac man but I know the retina display with Fedora Core would be gorgeous.

Check our Jessie’s blog here.

You will be able to containerise your desktop due to native support of LXC and Docker with distributions such as Ubuntu 14.10 and Fedora Core 21. Have you tried it? Let me know how you get on.
