No, I am using a Linux laptop myself.

Huh, weird to hear "when you buy a computer, just use what's on it" and "let hardware and OS be someone else problem" in that case, we Linux users have a long list of issues with computers not coming with our preferred OS and hardware not available/poorly supported due to corporate policy. But I guess I get much more annoyed than you by that :P

I bought a laptop designed for Linux.

To be honest, I have gone through installing Linux myself many years and I have used a Mac in the past as well.

I find Linux important. But things have changed (WSL 2 on Windows, VS Code devcontainers, k8s, AWS Lambda) and installing an operating system and dealing with hard ware problems is nothing developers need to know anymore 😉

How do you like it? I was looking at System76s Laptops for personal use.
