How to install ROS on mac OS X El Capitan?


I am completely new to ROS and I want to install it on mac OS X El Capitan. Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5. Memory 4 GB.

my questions are:

1- Is it better to install ROS in a virtual machine(using virtual box, Ubuntu) or install it as dual boot in separate partition(for Ubuntu)? Has anyone tried the dual boot option?

2- which Ubuntu and ROS versions are suitable for me? I will use ROS to test different path planning algorithms.

I am afraid that the virtual machine software will slow down my mac.

Thanks a lot in advance,
