KDE "Considering that the previous revisions were surprisingly unstable, I can honestly call this one the most stable of the ones I have tested until now. I experienced only one crash and the performance was more than satisfactory. Now I can be almost sure that when a stable edition of KDE 4.1 is published, I will definitely say good bay to my old good KDE 3.5."

Speaking of Mac + KDE,

which is the best Linux distro to try out on my MacBook? Which distro will let me use most of my MB's features with as little fuss as possible?

If said distro even has a live cd version, that would be super.

(k)Ubuntu. On my 1st gen macbook, nearly everything worked right out of the box. That includes wirelss, bluetooth and even suspend. The only thing I had to tweak a bit was the iSight support but that's working too.

Most hassle free linux distribution I've tried to date.

I used Ubuntu and gentoo on my mac book pro 3rd gen. Ubuntu did work perfectly (not out of the box in 7.04, but in 7.10 yes (we did submit all bogs).

Gentoo with a mac portage reposity work fine too, but i am not able to get the wireless to work... Even with the same svn version of madwifi and the same kernel config than in ubuntu.
