That is a very interesting post. Thank you for writing it.
I have a note where I gather all the tools and installation when I am setting up a new Linux or Mac machine.
I planned to create some script to automate it but never started it.
I definitely must do it.
Some time ago I realized that I can write notes of this nature as scripts, or at least, close to. So now I try to start there whenever possible. Documentation is automation!
