This is why I ordered my MacBook Air with 512GB of flash.  I dual boot OSX
and Ubuntu using rEFInd to manage them.  Works like a charm.

Granted, I had Wily on there and it wasn't so good, ran hot, poor battery
life, etc.  Xenial seems to have resolved a lot of tiny complaints I had
about running Ubuntu natively on the MBA hardware.
