I wonder if you good people of ABB have found a live-cd distribution of Linux that runs on a Intel iMac and gives you decent development tools or, better yet, one that installs onto a USB key that runs on a Intel iMac.
a lot of logins

I can't say I have seen anything of such a purpose. As for USB, I've noticed that for some reason, no distributions load off the USB port.

How about download Ubuntu and install the image to a USB key, then boot your computer off of the USB key? I do that all the time with my PC.

Well, I got it working with Wubi over Windows on my iMac, so no need of that.

Excuse my ignorance here if I'm wrong, I avoided Macs all my life simply on ethics and moral principle.
But do they have some sort of BIOS that you can access?

I remember when I wanted to load linux on my netbook, which lacks a CD drive. I had to set the thumb drive as the primary hard drive in the BIOS.
It was a funky way of doing it but it seemed to have worked.

I don't know. But I luckily don't have to deal with that as I got it working via Wubi. Now it works perfectly, just like I'd installed it onto a PC. Problem solved!
