Can you run any distros of Linux Natively on a mac, like you can on standard PC hardware?
I don't think I would ever run on hardware that I was limited to only one native OS, especially if the machine cost was more than 1.5-2 PCs WITH an OS each that could run Linux natively as a storage box when it was done being the main rig...
Most macs I have seen as just as good a a low-end dell, or hp with no place to add 3 drives if you wanted to run kernel-based raid of some sort... Repurpose and reutilization of cases and other hardware is a big factor for me, as I am a cheap bastage, as child-care costs are a beach...
