About this book


Some might say we all want Linux with an OS X graphical user interface. Mac for Linux Geeks will assist you step by step in migrating from Linux–based systems to OS X. Dual booting, virtualization, and building out the Linux environment on OS X are discussed in detail, along with a comparative view of well–known Mac tools and their open source equivalents. Written for daily use, this concise and dependable guide will steer you across the technical landscape from your chosen Linux flavor to the OS X promised land.

  • Live with OS X, but work with Linux tools
  • Make the OS X–Linux hybrid a reality
  • Use Mac tools where possible and free software where appropriate
