    mac on linux

    So if I wanted to still do mac stuff on a computer running ubuntu would it be more efficient to have a dual boot or to get an emulator such as mac-on-linux? It should also be noted that I have an ibook g4 with 512mb of RAM and 30gb on the hard drive, so the best use of limited resources is preferable.

    mac on linux isn't your best option if you're planning on doing graphics or cpu-intensive things because it's basically an emulator and won't run high-end programs. if you can, try installing osx or ubuntu on an external firewire drive and booting off of that, otherwise go with a dual-boot.

    Definately dual boot. I have a high end 2010 i7 MBP with 8gig ram and still run it dual boot. that way you can get thebest out of your system. I don't usually find myself needing to switch between apps on one of the OS's to the other quickly and if I decide I want to do something on one or the other it doesnt take long to restart and boot in another OP
