Remember when I told you how I liked working on the Mac Book Pro? Well, it really was a nice experience.
Yet, just a few hours ago, I was trying to install Ubuntu Studio on that machine which belongs to my older brother and was unable to do so..
At first, I decided to have my brother burn the iso to a DVD. Yet, when he did so it still didn’t work. So then I used the same DVD to try to install it onto my laptop, the same one I spoke about here. I would do it in virtualbox and it worked just fine.
So, obviously there was nothing wrong with the DVD or the data stored onto it.
Which brings me back to why I complain about Apple.
Hmm, where do I start? Well, for one the hardware is rather expensive and you would think after spending so much money on something that one would in fact have the freedom to install whatever they like on their machine. Yet, this is not the case in the walled-garden that is MAC.
Are they afraid, that maybe just maybe open-source software would be preferred by their users? What about having the ability to make a choice?
Is that freedom? NO!!! I mean Ubuntu even goes to the trouble of producing a version that is specifically designed to be run on MAC.
I will keep you guys posted on any further developments, so stay tuned.
Until then, what an EPIC FAIL!!!
