I have a brief story to share, and I'm fairly sure I'm in the right place. I've been an OS X user for almost 10 years -- before that, Windows. I started using Linux on remote servers about 2 years ago when I was learning to code. I loved my 2014 MacBook Pro. But then, earlier this year, a single key broke (the "T" key), and the machine was out of warranty because I didn't bother to pay for AppleCare. (I had my prior 2008 MacBook Pro for 6 years of fairly heavy use -- I used it until, after 5 years, the integrated graphics chip went bad and there was a massive line of static up the middle of the screen, so it became a desktop computer.) Anyway, Apple told me my 2014 MacBook would require a $500 repair -- due to a single broken key they needed the replace the entire keyboard, the touchpad, and the battery. Because it's all seamlessly welded, but mostly because fuck you. It's called a top-case replacement. So I figured I'd just wait for the new MacBook Pro to come out, amid rumors that it would be totally boss. I did this for almost 6 months, waiting for it to come out. Checking the newspaper every couple of days for rumors. . . . . . . . . When it finally did come out, and I saw the 2016 MacBook Pro's specs and price point, I knew I wasn't going to buy it. I wasn't going to carry a briefcase full of dongles. I didn't want to pay for an underpowered sedan in a ferrari case. Fuck all of that. I'm writing to report that I just successfully installed Ubuntu 16.10 on a brand new Razer Blade laptop. (I do machine learning stuff, and the GTX 1060 is very helpful for running (but not training) neural network models.) I tried to wait in line on Black Friday at the San Francisco Razer Zone store for a half-price Blade with the prior GPU, but missed out on the last box by about ten minutes. But it's been a good year (for me at least -- not so much for the world), so I said "fuck it" and paid full price for the new model with the 1060. I am not dual booting -- I nuked the machine's Windows installation when it appeared that dual booting was going to require some effort, and because fuck Windows --- still not sure that was a good idea, but I made sure to set the keyboard lights to a desirable color and restrained myself from any sort of terrifying animated light show that I might get sick of after 90 seconds should the machine inevitably get stuck that way, which of course it did (for now -- almost got the drivers figured out). I panicked a little while setting up the computer. I'm a programmer, but resolving all the hardware issues was more difficult than expected, and I have to run the bleeding-edge version of Ubuntu. Surprisingly, the touchscreen works! I'm still working on getting the keyboard light drivers to work, so I can annoy my friends and coworkers with obnoxious gamer light patterns -- hopefully, I can figure out a way to write scripts for the LEDs in Python. Unfortunately, the webcam may be a lost cause for now. (If anyone could point me in the right direction on that, it would be greatly appreciated.) Also, every other time I boot up the computer fails to recognize its own keyboard, but I see that as a security feature because when I reboot it always recognizes it the 2nd time. Overall, I am very happy about my switch from Mac to Linux, but a little scared about plugging this computer into a projector in front of an audience for the first time.... just don't want to be that guy fumbling on the stage for like 20 minutes running xrandr commands like a maniac, trying to get some sort of output on the screen while he loses everyone's attention and people are leaving and some old guy in the front row has dozed off completely.... you get the idea. TL;DR Apple--; Linux++; Edit: typos submitted by /u/TheMadStork [link] [comments]

Hello! I have a Chromebook and absolutely love it. I am not a real Google fan, and would like an alternative, open source operating system. The design of Chrome OS is the thing I like to most. I have heard of Chromimum, but would like to stay away from that. Thanks! edit addded design submitted by /u/Techno-Trumpet [link] [comments]

I have found a very good deal on a used Yoga 3, and am thinking of getting it. However, Linux support is a must for me. My main concern is wifi, which I can't find much information about. However, I would like to hear any information from people who have used Linux with this laptop. submitted by /u/markasoftware [link] [comments]

Foobar and MusicBee are my favorite players bar none. But I've left Windows for good. On linux I haven't found too much that I like. I really am not a fan of Amarok or Clementine. I went from guaydeque to deadbeef to musique to GnomeMusic. Currently I'm digging Lollypop. It's has some breaking UI bugs which often make me need to reboot. I just tried out Yarock which looks alright. I like Album Art Views in general which it has. The rest of the UI I don't like. I think I'd use noise but it seems bugged in Xubuntu... :\ submitted by /u/loamfarer [link] [comments]
