I am considering getting the new MacBook Pro and dual-booting OS X and Ubuntu. All the help pages I found say I need to use rEFIt but is that really necessary? Can't I just use the default OS choose thing Macs already have preinstalled, because rEFIt is just really ugly in comparison to that.
I have an Ubuntu / Mac OS X dual boot system, but never installed REFIT. I do not know why people make such a fuss of this.
I just press the Option key and then I can choose OS X or Ubuntu.
