That means 'we are thinking about it only if we can impose our wishes on you'.  In some cases, you will see something but in most cases this means you will never see anything.

There are many things that are different between a standard Linux install and MacOSX.  Most of this revolves around the broken X11 that Apple provides.  There is supposed to be a major bunch of fixes in with XQuartz 2.3.3 to help with some of the issues.  This release is still pending completed testing and bug fixes.  

You can try and use the Mac specific version of Unbuntu, but I have no experience with this product.
