But why choosing the non-LTS version of Ubuntu (19.10) over the LTS-version 18.04?

Being close to upstream is nice, but being forced to do (not always successful dist-upgrades) isn't.

 

I always like To have the latest and greatest hahaha, and I like to test things so if I see a problem I send it down to canonical

 

I've played around with a ton of distros over the years, recently came back to Ubuntu and am really happy with it. I don't always use the latest on any of my PCs, but 19.10 on my main home PC is just plain fantastic even though I'm not using ZFS. But my laptop is for my main development and there I have 18.04, I'm excited in a few months to switch it to 20.04

You know I actually heard that they are asking people to wait before using zfs, I'm using ext4 since Ubuntu 16.04 hahahah well I changed to arch then to budgie and then back to Ubuntu on 19.04 but actually 19.10 is running like a charm on my laptop and it's like 4 years old hahaha so yeah I love it

Exactly, Linus is against putting ZFS in the Linux kernel due to oracle's tendency toward litigation. So I'll stick with etx4 unless given a real solid reason. 19.10 without ZFS is still one of the best Ubuntu updates I've used in years, real happy with it for home use, but I don't want to update to frequently on my laptop as that's for work and I can't afford to waste time with any hiccups. Good write-up by the way, I'm always happy to see people supporting Linux as their development box, always feels strange to me how many developers choose ios over it

Exactly that's why. You know my laptop is my work and school machine hahaha so I'm kinda playing with fire, thanks for the compliment its my first "long" post and I'm super glad everyone liked it, you if I could afford a Mac I might buy it to install a Linux on it hahahaha
