Slackware Linux working on PBP
I've been running Slackware Linux for the past few weeks on my PBP with much success after following this guide:

This is the "current" branch, but I have been quite happy with it and have had no problems.  As far as I can tell, everything works just fine (I haven't tested the webcam).

I wanted to post this here as another option for those who have had issues with other distros.  

Some downsides of this method:

1. You need an internal NVME drive
2. You must purchase the adapter
3. You must open the laptop (if you're afraid of this kind of thing)

The upside:

1. I have a perfectly working laptop.
2. You must open the laptop (if you into this kind of thing)
