Yeah you could put Linux on it... it's just a hard drive. The problem though it that when it's plugged into your Mac the HD is spinning the entire time, and if you're running an OS on it, it's being read/written to almost constantly... it's not really made for that, thus that's why it'll decrease the life span of it.
