I switched to Linux, you can too.


In 2005 I made the switch from Windows to Mac as my primary desktop working environment. Thirteen years later I made a similar switch to Linux. And eighteen months after the switch, this Apple 'fan boy' is not looking back.

For a full stack Drupal developer, a Linux development environment makes sense. In this session, I will share the reasons why I switched to Linux, how it has impacted my day-to-day tasks, the ease and pain points of the switch. We will cover:

Reasons to switch to Linux
The easy way and the hard way
Choosing a distribution
Transition plan
Software compatibility and alternatives
Breaking away from the Apple ecosystem or not
One year after the switch and moving forward
