re: The new MacBook Pros are overpriced VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I tried Linux a couple of weeks ago. My employer gave me a new Notebook so I could try it out.
Worst decision ever! I switched back within two weeks.

You're absolutely right, that the MacBook pricing is cheeky. For me the selling point is still macOS. You get a Unix based OS without the hacky desktop environment (in my opinion Gnome and others are still not comfortable usable for production use).

I'm glad that I could try Linux but for me there is no reason to leave Apple and MacBooks behind.

Ahahah :D Well, it's not that bad. In the sense that if you have a separate work laptop, you can make it work. Just have to win over your habits, two weeks is probably not enough. There's nothing work with sticking to macOS anyway...

I don't know, after all plenty of people use it comfortably. I don't like the UIs and windows managers that Linux has but if it were a "work only" computer I would probably be fine nonetheless. If all the software needed to develop was available on linux too I mean.
