There's been a tension in the Apple community for a handful of years — because of the bad keyboards, the changing ports, App Store restrictions, enforced software signing in macOS, and more. Just recently I've seen people exploring Windows and Linux, including myself.

I'm starting to wonder if Apple pushed things far enough that they're running off some of the die hards. Speaking for myself, the thought of using old Apple hardware (2015 and earlier) with Linux seems very appealing.

And the Framework laptop has me wondering if Apple hardware really needs to be part of the equation at all.

@mike I ran a 2011 or so Mac mini until this year with Linux. I only changed because the HDD chipset stopped working properly.

@souldessin I just retired my 2011 Mac Mini this past week — it was our home server for the past ten years.
