It’s now been a couple of years that I’ve been running Ubuntu as my daily driver. I had been on MacOS, but my MacBook was very old, and I was swayed by Dell’s XPS series laptops that came with Ubuntu preinstalled. As a newcomer to Linux, not having to install the OS myself was a major selling point.

I’ve now been through several reinstalls of Ubuntu (most recently 20.10), and have lost most of my fear of installing from scratch. In fact, it’s now one of the things I like most about Linux: if I’m unhappy with how things are going, I can always start again with a fresh install.

Moving from MacOS to Ubuntu was really a matter of trading one set of problems for a different set of problems. But I prefer the problems on Ubuntu. With a bit of work they are almost always resolvable to my satisfaction. It is very satisfying to be able to fix things yourself.
