Yesterday I decided to download Karmic Koala RC and burnt it on a CD. Today I had the time to test it. I have only one word for it: fantastic! It seems that almost evertything works out of the box in the live environment on my MacBook 2,1 except screen brightness control. I know from the Ubuntu forums, that this is a known thing. When installing Pommed, it should be fixed. I cannot check that as I am in the live environment now, but I will count on the community that it can be fixed.
