Yep! I just published a new article on DEV about my journey from Windows to Linux:


I also wrote about the Linux terminal a few weeks ago:

Among many reasons why you should at least try Linux:

  • Is free and open-source
  • Is fast: There are many "minimal" options for those who can't afford new hardware.
  • Is fully customizable: There are endless customization options through different desktop environments or window managers.

You may consider not using Linux if:

  • Your work depends on specific proprietary software that is not available on Linux
  • You want to play games that don't run on Linux.
