Discussion on: Should I use Linux?

If you use a Mac, you won't need Linux. It's UNIX like Linux. If you have a current Windows 10, just install WSL2 with a Linux distribution, Docker for Desktop, Visual Studio Code, and you're good to go. in any other case, install Linux.

Limitations of Linux are mostly less Games and no Photoshop. You say you have a Mac, and if you can live with that game-wise, you can live with Linux as well. If you need the Adobe Creative Suite, keep the Mac.

Thanks for your input. I don't really play games, do photoshop, or do Adobe stuff, I just code, do school, and watch YouTube! I think this is why moving to Linux is okay for me.
