It’s been a pretty chill week. A few interviews (likely leading nowhere), #Linux wins (I’ve got everything working, including touchpad multitouch gestures). Son singing songs in Mandarin after just three days in high school, and we just watched 2 episodes of Highlander (1992). Oh, I also finished season 3 of Mr. Robot, and can’t wait for the final season in October! #tv #school #languages
New OS, Who Dis: Going Linux after 15 years on Mac #linux #ubuntu #FOSS
So, first day with #Linux been interesting. Apparently, for #dotnet to serve web requests even locally, some weird SSL signing thing needs to be done, and it’s been unclear af. Also, surprisingly, #Firefox is super unstable on #Ubuntu , who would’ve thought?! Making HiDPI work somewhat consistently is also a struggle. But I haven’t been so excited about a computer (hell, about any price of tech!) since my first Mac in 2005. Customization is just phenomenal!
And the journey begins! #Linux
I mostly do web dev, some audio editing (on an #iPhone lately), and I truly, deeply, with all my heart hate my 2016 #Macbook's keyboard (replaced it once already, due for the second replacement), stupid touchbar, lack of USB-A and no SD-card reader. It's also slow as shit, and holds battery for, like 2,5 hours tops.
Question is, should I wait a few years and keep struggling with the old known evil, or switch to a superior hardware and a new, #FOSS evil?..
Go Seattle #Seahawks! 🏈
Socializing like it's 1999!
