If you've ever tried to boot Linux from a USB drive on a Mac, then you probably know that it is a difficult and often impossible process. Many distributions simply cannot boot using UEFI, the boot firmware that Intel Macs use, and others have such poor support that it is next to impossible to use them. Have no fear - Mac Linux USB Loader is here! Mac Linux USB Loader can create bootable USB drives of a Linux distribution which can boot on Intel Macs. It is available in English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Greek. For information on the supported languages, or if you want to help translate, please see here.
