Linux users and/or developers?

it was a nightmare when i got my first laptop, i had to sideload win7 as the install disk wouldn't work because of missing drivers etc.

i got the laptop for watching films while working away and vcds for the van (vw tool)

i have dabbled in linux a bit but tend to just use windows as i only really use my computer for gaming now

It's not what you buy its what you build

I just bought a refurbished Thinkpad x200 (8 years old...) and installed Linux Mint xfce in dual boot with Windows 7 pro. After a bit of fine tuning, I must say that I enjoy more and more Linux, although I have to stick with Windows because some tasks are easier or some softwares are developped for it.

No Dev here but am a Linux user since 2001. Currently on Ubuntu Mate LTS but have been distro hopping like a trampoline during the years. Tend to favor the deb-based ones

See I posted here 5 years ago. Still not a developer....but my main machine uses Manjaro and I am currently with you courtesy of a Raspberry Pi 2B and Raspian pixel.

An impressive necro bump and a timely one.

My main computer is a 4 or 5 year old Macbook Pro and it's had a problem with a battery and in the last few days I installed Lubuntu on a 10 or so year old Macbook.

I'm enjoying using it a lot. It's much quicker than I expected, and seems to have a lot less bloatware than I am used to be it on a Mac or PC.

The Linux distro has affectively given me a new (old) computer!

I've left Apple computers once they moved to Intel processors. At that point there was no "specialized" hardware o them. Power PC arch (RISC based) had great advantages on some software. Right now they only are expensive and well desinged PCs with a modded BSD on top.
I remember my old macbook with yellow dog linux running, I loved it so much :D

Linux sysadmin here, use a Mac for work. Used to be a package maintainer for a Linux distro and wrote the initial documentation for Dolphin file manager prior to it's inclusion in KDE4.

I used to be heavily into Linux but as I now work using it every day I like to keep some separation between work and downtime. I tend not o care now what I am using.
