    I have an iMac 27" with a core 2 duo processor. 3.03ghz 1tb hard drive. i've tried ubuntu but i can not get it to work. at first after i would press install ubuntu it would just go blank...now it has the " moving dots " and sits there for a bit...some text comes and now im back at an all black screen. Its been hours and just can't get it to work. is there a linux distribution that will work " easily "? thanks.:apple:

    Most work on Mac. Not sure what was happening with your Ubuntu install, but I've installed in on my Macs a good 4 times by now among other distros.
