    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I mostly switched to linux way back in 2006/2007. I kept a dual boot every now and then for things that only worked on windows. Sometimes I wiped the dual boot and only used linux on my laptops.

    Had the second gen Surface Pro tablet cause I thought I'd be able to install linux onto it, but linux support never got fully working for the first few years and then I accidentally dropped it onto the ground and the screen broke badly.

    Then in 2015 I bought the intel NUC5i7 and installed archlinux onto it and it's still working good. I distro-hopped a bit but am back to archlinux on it for now, but might turn it into something else like a HTPC now that I have the NUC10i7.

    I also bought the 2017 Pixelbook and used that for a while but it broke and became unbootable. The Pixelbook was cool and had a linux kernel based on gentoo with grsecurity and ran wayland. It was fun to mess around with crostini and chromebrew, but I missed a full linux distro desktop environment, and crostini was very new and being developed at the time. I did not like the android apps that never worked that great. VPN support was bad back then, and I was bummed out that the Pixelbook couldn't support 4k HEVC GoPro videos and had to film in 1440p. (If the Pixelbook hadn't bricked then I might have been able to use crostini to work with ffmpeg and kdenlive, but it broke before I got a chance to try it, and I doubt it had enough ram to do it)

    I purchased my first Apple product, the ipad pro 4th gen with the magic keyboard, and I really like it for the very professional apps for banking, credit cards, amazon, instacart, grubhub, and social media like twitter. Safari is pretty decent on the ipad pro and the apple pencil is fun to draw with.

    My newest computer is the intel NUC10i7 and it's running ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. I had clearlinux OS working nicely on it right before I installed ubuntu. I felt like giving ubuntu a try since I hadn't used it since 2007 and am very glad I did. Clearlinux was cool but you had to build most things from scratch like ffmpeg. Firefox never really worked that great like it does in ubuntu with everything working out-of-the-box perfectly, and VLC didn't play 4k videos that I could play with ffplay. The main thing I wanted to do with my new NUC10 was to edit GoPro videos with kdenlive and so far ubuntu has been working perfectly for that.
