So I've been using Ubuntu 14.04 as my main OS for a while now considering it simplified my Android (native) development process and I noticed that it increases my production value as well considering I can't distract myself as easy with games as I could on Windows. I still do enjoy the occasional chinese cartoon, but this is less now as well.
So currently, Ubuntu is still installed as my secondary OS, and my SSD is completely overtaken by my Windows partition. I'm seriously considering completely dropping Windows and formatting the SSD, and flashing the current Ubuntu-image on it.
Remind me again, what programs that are Win-only will I miss?
Never use potatochop so that's ok and I can probably run a lightweight version in a Virtualbox-image.
Nah, not anymore I think. 25 years old now, Embedded Software Engineer/Consultant and there is a shitload of stuff to learn out there. I just want to make more money and buy a house and an Audi A5 right now.
Yeah, this is definitely on my TODO list. I've been struggling with both Giggle as Smartgit so I've noticed that needs improvement. Coincidentally I suggested a git-training at work yesterday considering I noticed some colleagues struggle with it as well (and even worse, considering they didn't even understand branching with SourceTree). I already miss Sourcetree though.
Android Development, which I use Android Studio for now. C(++) dev, which I use Vim for and watching Chinese cartoons with VLC.
Way ahead of you
Great news. Anyone by chance have experience with good cloning tools? I would really like to make an identical copy of my current Ubuntu-system and basically just "drop" it on my SSD (holding into account that the SSD is only 250 GB as opposed to the current 500 GB partition)?
Well, I have several Android Source repo's on my partition (each one is > 50GB) and within them, I have tons of symbolic links to other working repositories which I use to flash custom ROM's. I'm just afraid that if I port it to the SSD, the symbolic links might get screwed up and that I'll be left with a shitton of compilation errors and fixing to do.
ubuntu is a solid distro, and even though unity has some drawbacks, it's a proper DE that is only getting better with each release. plus, spaceman-billionaire-hero mark shuttleworth is behind it (pic related). you won't miss windows. don't let idiots convince you otherwise.
