Re: Install Ubuntu on MacBook Air or not...?
Personally, if you can I'd just dual boot, set aside 20 or so GB for Ubuntu and keep your OS X on the main partition. Then, if you like it pick up an older laptop of one kind or another and do a full install of whatever flavour of Ubuntu or other Linux you want onto it but for sure KEEP your OS X on your MacBook Air. They go together like a hand and a glove, you don't want to ditch OS X but Linux is also fun to use.
