As mentioned here
before, even with EFI support in existing open source tools, getting the new MacIntels to boot something other than
OS X has proven tricky.
Linux support will eventually happen for the new platform (and related hardware in
the new machines), but I'm not sure Red Hat will be the first distro to achieve that. As always with Linux and BSD,
flame wars descend over which flavor is better. The reality is that I use different distros for different
uses/machines. Anyhow, aLinux distro on a new Intel Mac may end up being
many Linux distrosonce the bootloader
troubles are resolved.
