Nope. Totally agree that the new 2018 MBP are overpriced.

I'm split on where to go next. On one hand, I'm tempted to replace my current MBPr 2015 (when it eventually dies, so probably not for a while) with another 2015 MBP, because they were the last year before their major changes buggered them up.

On the other hand, I picked up an old Thinkpad that I installed Ubuntu on, and can seriously see myself replacing the macbook with a new ThinkPad and just running linux on it.

My last foray into the Linux Subsystem on windows wasn't a heck of a lot of fun, mostly with broken symlinks everywhere. It made developing ruby a real unpleasant experience. Have they improved it?

 

MBP 2015 is the best laptop ever made so I understand your "struggle".

On the other hand, I picked up an old Thinkpad that I installed Ubuntu on, and can seriously see myself replacing the macbook with a new ThinkPad and just running linux on it.

If you're fine with Linux there's honestly no reason to stick with MBPs. Thinkpads with Linux are really solid.
