I think I posted earlier that I'm in the process of switching to Linux and so far I'm on my 3rd distro, trying to find the right combo of stability, hardware support and features. Coming from Windows, where I spend my professional time, I need an environment that just works so that when I sit down to develop, I'm cranking code,not trying to get the platform to work.

Not that Windows is without warts, but in terms of being productive quickly it far out shines Linux for out of the box UX.

I like Fedora, but find gnome annoying. I'm currently using Ubuntu budgie and I love it

I change it to cinnamon, is better and friendly than gnome.
