re: whats your dev setup VIEW POST


My main dev machine is a system76 adder ws with an i9 and 32gb of ram running pop_os 19.10 (with cinnamon as the DE). My secondary more portable machine is a 2017 13” MacBook Pro with an i7 and 16 gb of ram, currently sill on Mojave.

On both machines I use a kinesis advantage 2, Logitech trackball, and a single lg 27” 4K hdr display.

Most of my work is done in emacs, with eshell as my main shell, with bash as a backup (although I’m currently testing libvterm and I’m very happy with it and likely to make the switch). I use nix for most dev related package management.


That's quality stuff! Got a system76 darter recently myself. Did you put NixOS on your system76?


I had originally planned to use nixos, but I decided to check out pop_os first, since it shipped with the laptop, just to see what System76 had done with it and I was so impressed with that level of polish that I’ve stuck with it for now. I’m still using nix for most of the dev work I’m doing, so I might end up switching eventually but for the moment I’m pretty happy with the hybrid setup I have.
