Tim,

I can see your point. I switched to try and get 1 more year or so out of my computer hardware. Windows has lots to be admired but it is a resource hog. By the time you run anti-virus/malware, skype, slack, etc.. you're lucky if your IDE can change pages at all.

There's a lot to like about Linux. The only thing I've missed about windows are things like Office (but I really like Libre Office), Variety of email clients, and one or two apps that don't have Linux versions (Trello do you hear me???)

But that's it. In a month or sow of Linux, not one single system hang up. There is a lot to be said for reliability. The fact that I use the command line makes working on web servers that much easier.

All that to say, the opposite is true as well. Linux makes me more productive. I'm less distracted by the ancillary stuff with Windows.

I have no issues so far as far as resources...but I have a pretty beefy laptop. I believe there is an electron wrapper of trello in existence..I have run it on Arch, it's in the AUR.
