hi there! @joeyjonnson
like you i am new to Fedora (but have been using other versions of gnu/linux for many years) may I suggest you try hacking your macbook pro?
I have a macbook air (2015) which is happily running Fedora 38 - I have installed Kinoite (and as such have an issue with the webcam not working yet) but I believe this is not an issue if you are using non-immutable versions!
I believe (wherever possible) in reclaiming, repairing and restoring as much old, surplus and redundant or outdated ICT as is humanly possible !! and I find gnu/linux is ideal for this purpose.
also it does a damn fine job at curtailing consumerism and minimising waste!
