I’m back on a Linux dev environment. Well, I never completely left, because I’ve always had Linux servers running my Rails apps. But I only ever had Linux as my desktop for a little while when I started working in the Surgery department. It had a few unfortunate errors that may have been related to the hard drive of that computer, which ended up being replaced. But I ended up switching back to Windows, as suggested by our sysadmin.
Now I’ve got my old computer set up with Xubuntu desktop and an input switcher to share the monitor/keyboard. My plan is to use Linux for web development and Windows for game development and graphics. And of course, for playing games since it has the better video card and more game options.
I have to admit, I’m still kind of in limbo on actual projects. There’s a lot I want to do, but I need to make some decisions on how exactly I want to do it.
