Currently installing the latest version of macOS Big Sur that fix battery issues for 2016 and 2017 models of MacBooks. The size of this thing? 2.43 GB. Must be a serious issue...

2 restarts and maybe 10 minutes later... 9 minutes remaining 🙄 Why do I have that feeling that macOS are worst than Windows in terms of updates?

Linux for the win! Install the new kernel, do a normal restart, done.

@edgren Can you install Linux on that Mac? Or is that one of the models where it's not working just yet?


@Ateriath Yeah, I can, but Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon (as shown on the picture) didn't work that well. I have created a partition for elementary OS 6 which I will install when it has been released. Plans to dual-boot between Linux and macOS.

@edgren Nice. Manjaro runs great on my old mac, but it's a 2012. Sometimes the older the hardware the better the support. 🤷‍♂️
