Running Ubuntu in Work MacBook

Mike Rockwell, on initialcharge.net:

This is actually a screenshot of a virtual machine running Ubuntu 22.04. The MacBook is primarily a work machine and I had previously setup a separate user account on it for personal stuff. This year I decided to move that to a virtual machine instead, which makes it easier to switch back and forth for quick breaks throughout my work day.

Basically a note-to-self post. Currently I only have my work MacBook Air M2 — although I’m thinking of purchasing an used M1/M2 MacBook Pro 14in sometime this year.

I found this concept by Mike worth considering. Even as a way to segment my work and personal workspaces.
