That's a change they've made, then - which is curious, because they made the opposite change in one of the other 10.5.x updates.

I don't think any PPC Macs can boot from GPT (although obviously I can't test all of them): I don't think Open Firmware was updated to recognize it...

GPT/GUID's advantage is known to Apple - obviously, they wouldn't be moving to it without reason - but apart from the BootCamp support, I'm not sure what exactly it might be. Perhaps it can support larger volumes... or is more flexible in other ways.
