I have an old Macbook Pro (mid 2011) with MacOs, but I see it works very hard with the software installed. Do you think I could make it more responsively if I try to run Ubuntu on it? I know that MacOS is part Linux but Apple input too many stuff on it, and even with 8gb ram sometimes you could hear the suffering of the fan in the processor. That's why I´m asking you for this advice.

You can definitely try. You can research more what Linux distros are out there that have even lighter system requirements than Ubuntu, as there are quite a few out there. Of course, they will lack in other areas. Good luck!
