I'd like to point you to a serious bug that seems to affect all Intel
based Macs.
Ubuntu 10.10 beta fails to boot on Intel Macs.
The Mac will hang right after Boot Camp/rEFIt with a black screen showing:


Select CD-ROM Boot Type :

This looks like an issue with the new release of Syslinux 4.x series,
which has trouble working with Apple EFI implementation.
I'd like to ask other owners of Intel based Macs and Macbooks to test
the latest daily live ISO on their hardware.
