    While I still have OS X installed due to firmware, I use Archlinux exclusively (except for my occasional sims 2 playing)

    You mean to be able to do firmware updates?

    How often does that occur? More with recent hardware than older models I presume?

    Basically, I tried using just Arch on this computer, but it didn't work at all because for some reason some of the firmware needs OS X.
