re: Is linux good enough for everyday programming? VIEW POST


Few weeks ago, I migrated completely to Kubuntu (yes... KDE version of Ubuntu) and NPM package installation has been very fast compared to time it took on Windows 10.

I regret going with KDE, which I thought looked great because

  1. Multi-monitor feature has been buggy
  2. Doesn't auto-rotate the screen (I have a 2-in-1 spectre x360 monitor which I turn upside down once in a while)
  3. IME (I use Korean input) has been hard to set up.

Unity (Ubuntu) has much better support for multi-monitor and auto-rotated my screen and has been a breeze for IME set up.

And also as I am new, documentation and community support is essential. It was tough to find Kubuntu-specific answers as many of setups/configurations were shown in Unity.
