Running Linux and BSD on the Mac Mini
Contributed by: Some Desi, at 4/09/2005 12:56:00 PM.

Apple's native operating system software offers you the best hardware support on Apple hardware, and the Mac Mini is no exception. Some of the hardware works just fine under open source systems; some isn't supported at all, or works only partially.
This article looks at the current state of Linux™ and NetBSD support on the Mini. If you need all the hardware and options fully supported, these open source options won't do it for you ... yet. But, if all you need is a stable kernel, a C compiler, and network support, the code is high-quality and the price is unbeatable.
Before you even think about installing a new operating system, make backups. Conveniently, the Mini's hard drive will be 80GB or smaller, so it's easy to back up everything on the disk. An external FireWire bay and a large enough disk to make backups is a very good investment here. Make backups. Really! Even if you're not going to install another operating system, please make the tech support workers of the world happy and make an extra set of backups right now, just in case.
