Forums: Debunking Linux hazards on mac, and more
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 @ 1:18pm

Yesterday in the MacNN forums, Grizzled Veteran "abbaZaba" questioned the veracity of a technician's report that Linux on Apple hardware could permanently damage the CPU. "Do I need Adobe Flash Player?" asks one Forum Regular who is trying to avoid a plague of pesky popups and other such annoyances.



Forum Regular "jonn804" is looking for a way to disable videos that automatically start playing when visiting a webpage in Safari. One forum member is on a frantic search for a Pentalobe screwdriver set in order to install a SSD into a new MacBook Air, provide suggestions here. Looking for a faster way to create recovery volumes, "l008com" turned to the forums for some advice.
