I switched to Linux, you can too.

Presenters: stephencross

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
