Phoronix: Linux Is A Lemon On The Retina MacBook Pro
If you are planning to buy one of the new Apple MacBook Pro notebooks with a Retina Display for use under Linux, hold off on your purchase. Running the Retina MacBook Pro with Linux isn't a trouble-free experience and after using even the latest development code and jumping through various hoops, Linux on the latest Apple hardware is still less than an ideal experience. Linux support will improve for the Retina MacBook Pro in the coming months, but it's not likely to see any proper "out of the box" experience until next year.
That's what Apple fanboys do, repeating Apple marketing speak all day.
Michael must be inexperienced in Fanboyism, since his conclusion was to "not purchase an rMBP for linux".
Ultimately, these results were expected. Without advance access to hardware, linux developers are left guessing as to what customizations Apple has made to the intel reference platform. I would expect to see the Intel APIC and Display issues resolved shortly, and released into Distro's in the next 6 months. Early-adopters are likely to get relief in the next 1-2 months.
I also agree that, in the event that you have a rMBP, VMWare Fusion is currently the best option for running linux.
looks like michael does an articol about same apple crap every week or every few days. cut if off ppl got the idea. And who is stupid to play for apple marketing when u can buy a thinkpad better equiped and linux compatible/friendly, or is just those boys that like to brag they have something exclusive that no one has.
