We just got a MacBook and put Ubuntu on it. It's a very nice machine,
but I hate that it doesn't have two mouse buttons, and the madwifi
drivers it uses are a bit flakey and get buffer overflows after a
couple hours of use. The madwifi problem just means that the wireless
doesn't work until I reboot.

I'm running gutsy on it. It runs compiz very nicely, and things like
Google Earth function pretty well (with some graphical distortions
from time to time.). The boot speed is incredible.

These two pages had everything I needed, except Christers nice xorg.conf file:
