Stella the sheep!

What with the whole Windows 10 backlash relating to its privacy issues, I’ve seen a fair few people make the switch to Linux and OS X.

But for a lot of people, that switch is hard to make. They’ve grown up using Windows, built their entire workflows around it, and will definitely need some time to readjust to an entirely new environment were they ever to switch. Because this seems like such a huge hit after all the investment they’ve put into learning, using and optimizing their experience with what they’re used to, they need way bigger a push to make that switch. They receive the same drops of water, but their buckets are larger.

This gets me to wonder how big my bucket actually is, for my “connection” with OS X in particular. Switching to Linux would be slightly less difficult for me, since it’s Unix-based like OS X, but there’d still be a lot I’ll miss. Or is there? I’ve never actively tried making a Linux system my daily use one, since I’m still fairly content with OS X. Making the switch, even if temporarily, might be a good experience, but at first sight it just seems like a lot of inconvenience, at least for the first day or two.

Excuses, excuses. Guess my bucket’s pretty big.
