Just switched to macOS High Sierra from Linux and I gotta say, really pleased so far with the experience. Everything is smooth, snappy and haven't encountered anything crashing yet.

    How'd the hackintosh work out for you? I've been interested in the idea but never tried it.

    Amethyst, Homebrew & Alfred 2 are my favorite "apps" on my Mac.

    Hyper.sh & iTerm might be worth a look.

    It's a pretty good environment for development.
    Plus Adobe software is natively supported.

    However the OpenGL is old as dirt.
    - it'll get replaced by Apple's Metal in next release tho.

    @starrynights89 I also have a Hackintosh and it is pretty stable. Updates can be a bit difficult, Nvidia drivers need to be installed manually after every update but that's easy enough.

    I am not a Mac user thought, I installed it besides Windows and Linux 'cause I can.
    So I didn't even chose my hardware to run a Hackintosh.

    If you can get your hand on a macOS installer and have a spare harddrive/SSD then just give it a try.

    @starrynights89 I haven't used it enough yet to form a solid opinion but first impressions are really good! I didn't build this PC specifically as a hackintosh, just decided to try out macOS and it worked just fine. Installation was flawless (even though I fucked up by forgetting network drivers)

    long time hackintosh user, with 1year+ work env on full linux. the difference is huge: no crashes, no memory leaks, apps dead-on easy install (no weird dependencies), smooth graphics (bonus: there's a synergy between UI of apps), MUCH MUCH better bluetooth support.

    for everything else there homebrew, macports and last but not least virtual machine :P
