This isn't so much a "how do I install Linux on Apple hardware" question, but rather a "could this do any sort of damage" one.
I've heard a few people speak of "burning out" the Apple hardware by installing a non-Apple operating system on the computer. In specific, I've heard it has to do with OS X and the way it manages CPU voltages via the SMC, and how a non-Apple OS does not interact with the SMC in a similar way, which in turn puts the CPU under too much load for too long a time, and burns it out.
I've done some research online, and haven't heard any mention of this being possible, but I'm curious if anyone has any experience in killing a Mac by installing Linux (specifically Ubuntu, or Fedora).
tl;dr – can installing Linux bare-metal on my MacBook Pro (early 2011, i7 13") have any ill effects on my hardware?
