My employer uses latest and greatest macbooks. It's fuking awesome. I wasn't a fan until I found the ease of android and iOS development on it. I even started using Atom for web development. And I bought a Mac mini for a dedicated jenkins server. I don't think I'll ever go back to windows. There's just no point. I know it's expensive but it gets the job done. No more fukin mac VMs on VMware. Fuk that shit.

    When you go Mac, you can't go back. Found this out like 4 years ago, every time i touch a windows system, feels like I'm working on a torture.

    @adegbengaagoro I went Mac and went back. It's certainly different and some may prefer it, but it's in no way objectively better.

    Fingerprint login, and dark mode, to name a few.

    Atop is great.
    But I find vsCode way better.
    You might wanna give it a try

    @Arnau fake news.

    @uroboros saying "fake news" on facts which can easily be checked....
    I rather have you say nothing then talking shit from your mouth. Thanks

    Apple traps you in its beautiful, mostly user-friendly prison. Everything is functional, solid, and pretty. But there is little you can do to make it home.

    Microsoft doesn't give a shit about you or breaking your environment. Good only for gaming, and only because Vulkan isn't the standard yet. There is also more malware for Windows than all other OS's combined.

    GNU+Linux (😅) is a lot of effort, but overall more reliable, customizable, and performant.

    I think the second best thing about devrant is how many people you can trigger with a single comment.

    @Root I agree with your comment! I would like to piggyback and add that GNU/Linux can be as much or as little effort as you want it to be depending on your distro, and that most of the effort is in the initial setup post-installation

    @-Minty- 😊

    A caveat, though? most distros will eventually break themselves (e.g. arch especially), so there is some maintenance load, too, even if that maintenance is just installing a fresh copy of a new version.

    @Root Very true, though I've had Windows break much worse than I've had my NetRunner install break in the past year

    @-Minty- Fair.
    I think even Arch is more reliable than Win10 now.

    I honestly can't remember the last time I spent time "customizing" my machine. I use it to develop and browse the internets. What do people even customize in Linux distros? Placement of the app dock..?
  • 1
    @Root Ha! I'd trust some random independent distro over win10.
  • 2
    @uroboros Really?

    Custom terminal, terminal colors, shell, shell plugins, window manager, desktop environment, hotkeys, window themes, ...

    I think you're confusing linux with osx given your "placement of the app dock" comment.

    Curious as to why Android dev was easier on the Mac? I'm getting one myself and wanted to know

    @uroboros you've never seen /r/unixporn?

    @Root Yeh that just seems like a whole lot of work for nothing. A complete waste of time. Maybe hot keys and add-ons are nice. But not worth the effort

    Haha, love it.

    Back in the day, Mac fans brought forth points like "true Unix underneath", system stability, ease-of-use. Today: "But it's got a dark theme!"

    We live in a world where all major OSes are actually good. Times truly have changed. For the better.

    @VaderNT I honestly could care less about most differences. I just need to run iOS and android projects and develop as efficiently as possible. Got bills to pay. Not trying to loligag around theming and customizing the location of the app dock. Lmao kids.. 😂

    @uroboros Customizing and tweaking your primary tools / personal machine is a complete waste of time. Got it.

    ... Huh.
    I definitely don't agree.
