A flavor for Linux
When I switched to linux in spring 2020 I tested an array of different Linux distributions on my 2021 Macbook. The only one I could get to run reliably was Ubuntu.
I switched to a P50 ThinkPad - see rosinante - but I've stuck with Ubuntu. I use Regolith, a pre-configured conglomerate of desktop tools built on top of GNOME and i3. It focuses on keyboard driven terminal use but is versatile enough to handle most of my needs.
In 2023 I finally found someone who could fix my Macbook and I've been using it for communications and on the go - see trabant.
For a list of tools that I use, see software.
