Discussion on: Switch to Linux?

I actually went from Windows, Linux then to Mac. The reason being, it is what the company gave me when I went to Linux Academy last year. Now as a Linux fan I tried to get that sleek look through a Dell XPS 13 that shipped with Ubuntu, etc but whew, when I got handed this 16" MBP I was really impressed with the look/feel, weight, screen, ease of use and battery life. I have the features I need with Linux and the ecosystem/access for apps etc. Sure I could get them on virtually all OSs but maybe it truly came down to creature comforts?

Like others have suggested though, I do dual boot with Windows 10 and have an Ubuntu server here at home.

Yeah, man, another option for me is to keep this laptop with windows / wsl and have a MB Air with its bash and its nice things... and save a lot for an MBP like yours!!! hahahaha! Thanks!!

Yeah, depending on what your doing, I bet the air will be that sweet spot with an external monitor and on the go ease. With git and remote syncing it's easy to switch between machines.
