Ubuntu 9.10 as well as Debian Unstable (Sid) use it by default. It's
in Debian Stable (Lenny) also optionally available. There are even
backports of grub2 from backports.org available for Debian Oldstable

Never had problems with them on i386 or amd64. I once already
installed grub2 from backports.org on an Etch box with 3 TB RAID while
to Debian installer was still running. :-)

I though have severe problems with grub2 onn Sparc. Currently sitting
in front of my UltraSparc, testing the newest version if they fixed
them this time. :-)
