You could try to run ubuntu virtual on you Mac via virtualbox for Mac OS.
Also very easy for testing purposes...

See how here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJcc-xC6krE or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AnlvTgsoYM
Download here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

I personally love the 64b Linux Mint edition with the Cinnamon desktop which is based upon Ubuntu. Very userfriendly!

I'll stick with XFCE: imagine Windows XP without
all the %^&*$ of Windows. :D

I am sorry, I thought you were the originator of the video :oops:
The importance to me is only for my own verification, and does not really do anything for advancing the thread. Sorry to have bothered/pm'd you :oops:

As one gets oriented to Ubuntu after years with Mac or Windows, this book can be very helpful:

Beginning Ubuntu for Windows and Mac Users, by Nathan Haines
https://www.apress.com/gp/book/9781484229996

Nathan is a long-time friend, and co-organizer with myself of the UbuCon event at the SoCal Linux Expo. Professionally he's provided a wide range of tech consulting on all major platforms for decades, and is a darn good writer, able to take the reader from complete noob to competence in just under 200 pages.
