[ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.10 for Macbook pro late 2008

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello people ! I have a Macbook pro late 2008, with 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 64 bit and 2 GB RAM. It was very fast with the OS 10.5 but now with the OS 10.8.2 it's simply crawling ! I don't want to spend money in hardware upgrades, so I am thinking of installing Ubuntu. I'd like your help re the following issues: 1. Which version of Ubuntu 12.10 shall I get : 32 bit or 64 bit ? 2. Shall I make a dual boot system with Mac OS and Ubuntu ? In this case, will I be able to use my files and media already stored in the Mac partition? And also, will Ubuntu work smoothly with t (Hardware)
