I’ve been a lifetime user and have always developed on Windows machines. I’ve switched over to almost two months ago and it has been mostly painless.

I have an amazing and highly customized set-up right now with a lot of productivity enhancements.

I’m thinking about writing a post about my process and experience. Is that something you might be interested in?

@bvdbasch

Please do, it's always great to see what other people are up too with their system.

And it makes a great resource for others thinking of doing the same thing.

@robjloranger small update on this: the huge article about how I customized everything can now be summarized as: just install Kubuntu and you’re almost ready to go. So I’m rethinking and rewriting most of it.

Anything in particular you would like to see covered?

@bvdbasch
I'm personally interested in others customizations. I love seeing what plugins/extensions and tweaks people use with what software as well.

I think for others looking to switch over for the first time, any install tips or troubles you overcame are always good.

@robjloranger I well then you’re in luck. All the tools I’ve installed come from the main repository save a few. And the dot files I use are open source with a few customizations here and there. Will put them up on my :github: at some point in time. 😇
