UPDATE: after 2 - 3 weeks I was spending too much time on Google searching for solutions to my Linux issues. I wasnt getting much web dev done because I was busy being Linux sysadmin I found a 2015 mb Pro on Craigslist and switched back.
The screen and trackpad on the Mac are much better. OS X just works in the background. It is not where I spend the majority of my computing time. 3x in the past 8 years I have tried a non Apple laptop. All 3x I was disappointed, for various reasons, and back to an Apple within a month or two.
tldr; I really wanted to save some $, but Linux just isn’t there for me yet.
The cost of Apple laptops is getting out of hand. I needed a new machine so I decided to give Linux a try, specifically Pop!_OS (based on Ubuntu). It’s been 2 days. So far there are lots of things I can do in OS X that I still need to figure out in Linux.
I was wondering if anyone else has switched and how long it took you to get comfortable?
