I bought a MacBook Air a few years ago as my personal machine and I remember it being painful going to it. My argument at the time was that if it gets too bad, I’ll just throw Ubuntu on it (I never did). MacOS is nice when you are a dev. It just make everything easier (unless you are a .net dev, I guess?). Brew is great for software management. Valet is an option with the Mac (but I would really recommend Docker). It’s nice to not need to have to figure out what should be done in WSL vs Powershell. With the Mac, you just have the terminal.

If you are anything like me, you’ll be fine.
