I'm going to write a lot more about this in the coming days but the most important takeaway from my first few days of switching my main development machine to Linux (Pop!_OS 18.04)?

I. Do. Not. Miss. The. Mac. One. Bit.

Everything Just Works (tm), including my USB-C-only LG external monitor (which doesn't even work with Laura's older MacBook Pro), Magic Trackpad, etc. And there are things I actually enjoy more about the experience. Never thought I'd be writing this about Linux. Exciting times!

@aral we live in a bizzaro world. Moving from a mac to linux and the impression is 'wow, things just work'.

Wasn't that supposed to be the impression going the other way?

@inmysocks @aral good for you! depending on the distribution it is the other way. Which one did you choose?
