If you have time before starting to work, go Linux. I know many Linux Distros are usable out of box, but it takes time to "optimize" it to your job & likings.
Kostaskol911y@melezorus34 Oh yeah, for sure. As I said, I've been using linux for about 6 years so I know it takes a while to have it the way you want (although after this many installations, I've pretty much streamlined the process).
At any rate, I don't believe I'll be getting said laptop until I start working there
It's alright for work. Linux is better for what I do. Things you'll want:
Alacritty w/ starship prompt
The everything dongle: https://amazon.com/dp/B07PPGWQ15/...
I use moom for window management hotkeys, but there's a billion apps out there that handle that.
Also yadm for dotfile management.
Alternately, you can use iterm for multiplexing, it is also excellent.
If you like tiling windows, there's amethyst as well.
Mac is more classy and easy to use out of the box.
But pretty much everything that Mac has can be done on Linux as well, if you know how to and if you have time. I don't find Mac customizable at all.
Also most production servers are Linux (if your work is related to that) so that's also better. For example, I had to work on Debian packaging for the product but I had a Mac so I needed to deploy stuff and all. Where as if I had Linux I'd have tested everything there itself.
gvnix19911yTake a Mac. Even if macOS doesn’t work out for you. You can run Linux on it.
