I knew of only one, which is what made the article rather odd. It doesn't
seem to introduce any novelty. Maybe the name "IBM" made it more reachable

Linux on OS X is not a simple project; not as easy as it may seem at first.
Even once you obtain the appropriate image, there are hardware-related
issues like the one-button mouse. This begs for some new peripheral$.
