Changin’ the OS

My development studies started 12 years ago, in 2003. Before 2003 I was just “playing” with code: nothing really serious worth mentioning.

I always used Windows. And I never had problems. Yeah, shame on me, guys!

However, during the last week I had to change my PC and I started making strange and pervert thoughts, like “hey, what if I try to switch everything on Linux?”

Everything started because, right now, I am using an Ubuntu Live USB Key. With a really old USB key, everything is going fine. Next week, I will install an SSD on my new pc, with 16GB ram and an Intel i7 processor. So, what better occasion to do this complete switch?

Today, August 18th, 2015, I switched to Linux. Ubuntu, to say it all.

Now, I don’t want to jump to quick conclusions, so I am not writing anything else here. On September 20th, a month (circa) from now, I am going to write another post in which I will judge this change, trying to understand if Ubuntu can be the right one for me.

Cheers!
