@mdrockwell Good choice, as they were the cutoff point to still be able to run at least Big Sur (not sure about Monterey).

@pimoore yeah, I’ll set one up for Becky with the most recent macOS it can run and then I’ll probably dual boot mine with macOS and Pop!_OS as an experiment.

@mdrockwell I tried Linux briefly on my old 2012 MBA, and the only thing that gave me trouble was the Broadcom wireless which I was eventually able to work around by installing the proprietary drivers. For the rest of it, that era of MBA is apparently pretty solid for Linux support, especially for Ubuntu variants, as well as Solus which is the distro I tried.

@pimoore I have tried a few distros on my 2012 Air, and had no issues. Manjaro was the last one, loved it.
