[Discuss] GNU/Linux Distro for Mac?

Nope, sorry, that's completely irrelevant to the subject of this thread. To

mean just the MacOSX desktop, is disingenuous at best . It serves only to
muddy the conversation and  derail the conversation.

If your intent was to troll the conversation, then congratulations; mission
