The Year(s) of Linux
- In January 2022, Steve moved to Linux on his main desktop - Linux Mint
- So far, nearly every app, feature, and core experience made the jump without much fuss
- Linux Mint is very Windows-like
- OneNote on the web just isn't there yet. I have a VM to run the Windows version (it doesn't work in Wine)
- Mini-state of the Zunion: It’s capable of browsing files on a connected Zune device, USB passthru to VirtualBox works
- Teams on Linux needs work
- Asks for a login every time
- Input/output sound devices get confused during calls - unusable
- Just use teams.microsoft.com in a browser
- Steam/Proton is fantastic for gaming
- Should you do it?
- If you're willing to put up with learning fast and researching community fixes
- Most Microsoft-based stuff will work on Linux, with the exception of OneNote which is stuck being web-based (or use a VM)
