Surprise, Surprise! For 25 fives I am into the whole computer thing now. Programming for nearly 20 years and for the same time I’m also a Microsoft Windows user – Except for a two year break with MacOS.
An now, I recently bought a ThinkPad 430s and installed, right after I got it, Linux. My plan is to use the ThinkPad as my main machine and work pc. For now, it looks like it works.
I chose the Linux Mint distribution, which is – as the folks say – a good start for beginners. After installation nearly everything worked right out of the box. Some minor parts and functions needed a little more attention and still need it, but I’m completely happy with it. It’s great to have the opportunities to set up every little detail and learn something new every day.
So, as you might read, I’m now into Linux and I plan to stick with it.
Side note: I also own a Windows 8 Ultrabook for the Windows programming and all the great new possibilities, because I’m still a .NET fan by heart and always will be.
