At present, rEFIt supports installation on the Mac's. But can it be made to support installation on Windows PC's and Laptops, because the regular GRUB2 is very boring to use and need keyboard inputs.
A lot of us will replace GRUB2 with rEFIt if this can be done!

    The PC or Laptop would need to have EFI. You could then try booting refit.efi or shell.efi. You would just put them where the EFI can find it. You might need to update the code that finds the legacy boot loader and modifies/uses the NVRAM. There may be other issues such as the version of EFI used.
