I'm going to write a lot more about this in the coming days but the most important takeaway from my first few days of switching my main development machine to Linux (Pop!_OS 18.04)?

I. Do. Not. Miss. The. Mac. One. Bit.

Everything Just Works (tm), including my USB-C-only LG external monitor (which doesn't even work with Laura's older MacBook Pro), Magic Trackpad, etc. And there are things I actually enjoy more about the experience. Never thought I'd be writing this about Linux. Exciting times!

A music player for lossless and studio masters. Dual 24-bit 192kHz DAC. It’s delicious.
Because Spotify on an iPhone just isn’t good enough.

Overpowering, unbalanced, aggressive, unrelenting. I LOVE IT.
Life is better at the extremes. Black or white. Fuck grey. That’s where everything mundane lives.

The graveyard. ☠️🎼
A moment of silence for these damaged drivers. Or silence forever: the coils melted and the kevlar cones deformed.

I think they don’t know the correct measure for a neat scotch. I don’t mind. ✈️🥃

brushing your teeth has a really terrible UX. no feedback whatsoever. you just have to follow the instructions and hope you're doing it right. the really satisfying sound design that everyone's familiar with is actually NOT present when you're brushing properly. totally counter-intuitive. the sound design for proper brushing is almost non-existent. the visuals are mundane at best and horrifying at worst. the whole concept needs to be re-imagined imo
