Is the new iMac (8/07) hardware supported?

By any fairly modern linux distro?

Please, don't shoot me if this is the wrong thread to post in, but I was wondering. They look wonderful... but I don't want to pay 1300 for one, partition half the disk, install linux (probably Ubuntu Feisty, or maybe Gutsy), and painfully learn that the graphics card has no good driver, or that... well, whatever, you get the point (I hope)

PS: If anyone knows, it'd be cool to have a working iSight camera supported as well.
