Red Hat to make Linux run on Intel macs

Red Hat representative Gillian Farquhar announced
last week that the company plans to add support for Apple's new Intel
Macs to its popular distribution. Fedora and several other commonly
used Linux distributions support the PowerPC architecture used by Apple
in the past, and Red Hat wants to ensure that its software will
continue to run on new Apple hardware in the future. The current
impediment is the Extensible Firmware Interface, a relatively new BIOS
replacement designed by Intel that is not yet commonly used or widely
supported.
