I use Kalyway on my desktop. I guess it depends on what hardware you have as to what distro you choose. Kalyway works perfectly on my desktop, all hardware working with drivers included on the Kalyway DVD, so it's the perfect choice for me.

Hey, I was just voter number 1000. Do I win a date with Scarlett Johansson or anything?

Kalyway has always been the most reliable for me across a whole range of hardware. Recently i have made the switch to Iatkos v4i and i'm very impressed... I find i get better performance from Iatkos but Kalyway's release seems to support alot of hardware and is ideal for beginners :blink:

cheers,

I would choose Kalyway. I hope Kalyway will have a 10.5.5 update patch. Kalyway is stable and better for me..

Although I mainly used Kalyway releases for both Tiger and Leopard, I would have to say that the latest IDeneb works the best on my machine. It never crashes and everything worked right out the box.

Mine is retail, on my hardware only few pathes were needed
HDEnabler, few of disablers and efi strings for gfx
and of course bootloader (chameleon)

So i've made little package witch contains necessary kexts,
chameleon ... if for some reason some day reinstall will be needed
then it wont complicate whole process.
