Apple just stopped supporting my Macbook with OSX Sierra. So that means from now on Apple will not let me download the newest sleekest version of their Operating System. I don't want to sell it because well it wont sell for enough to justify all the money I put into it.

So I want to turn it into a Linux machine, down the line; with my SSD and 16gb of RAM it should be decent. Ill probably keep OS X on a very small partiton, just because. Im wondering what Linux distro I should use, I've played around with Ubuntu before and Fedora. But Im thinking about Arch and maybe Kaili.

Mint is about as good as it gets.

No. Mint is horrifically insecure.
Kali is best for security related majic etc.. Arch will make you MAC sing like a well oiled choir boy if your in to that sort of thing. and onviously you can install anything on an Arch base pretty much.

What's some good resources to get started with Arch?
I hear it can be tedious and its pretty much barebones alot of command line stuff.>>120222

Compile some stuff on your mac. Install arch or whatever with bootcamp. Remove at will.

No. Mint isn't packaged specifically for someone delving into networks, but it's still secure for normal operations. Change your settings to update the kernel and other "unstable" updates, you'll be fine.

Mint being terribly insecure is just a stupid meme.

His MAC address will sing?! I thought you said it was secure!

Fedora. It's easy as fuck and GNOME3 is less retarded than MacOS once you get the right plugins working.

gnome 3 interesting. Used to be my favorite with mandrake. Then it wasn't and others complained when it changed. Whatever, back when. So have used KDE for most systems if offered. Plugins? Do you mean dependencies?

Gnome Shell uses extensions like a web browser. extensions.gnome.org hosts them, and you install them from your browser (though distros usually keep a few really common ones in the package manager).

Most people who use Gnome use at least one extension that gives them a regular task bar. The most powerful ones are "Dash To Dock" and "Dash to Panel". Vanilla Gnome shell keeps its "Dash" taskbar in overview mode, to save real estate, and these move it out into the regular workspace.

My favorite extension is Shelltile, which gives you some pretty flexible window tiling options, and even groups tile layers in overview.

Ohh, yea I have used a few distributions that sound like that, a while ago so not sure if it was gnome 3 at the rime. Thanks for the basics on it usage.
