Finally got fed up with macOS on my mid-2014 MBP, especially since it can’t be updated to Monterey, and set up dual boot with Manjaro since I like Arch and use it a lot but didn’t want to fiddle too much on the install.

My god it’s amazing how fast it can actually run on a lightweight OS. Now my only reason to want an upgrade is for that sweet sweet M1 goodness and not because it takes 15 seconds to open a terminal on the current one.


Still got some fiddling to do and haven’t checked if things like adjusting screen brightness or keyboard backlight work but it’s shockingly fast even running heavy electron apps like VS code.
