For the first time in about 15 years, I’m running Windows as my primary operating system.
It would not be accurate to say that I’m feeling conflicted about this. I’m feeling downright disgusted by this.
But you know what… it’s pretty OK so far. I’ve not had 100% success getting things working, but I have more working now that I typically would at this point in a Linux install, and Windows 10 is pretty nice.
What happened? Well, basically I got bored of my computer not working. I don’t actually enjoy ops at the best of times, and debugging why my computer has randomly decided sound shouldn’t work or similar is absolutely not the best of times.
The plan is that most work is going to keep happening in Linux running on a VM. I’ve ended up having to use virtualbox rather than Hyper V (I got a bunch of weird effects with they keyboard not capturing properly on hyper V and I really wanted native shared folders support), but it’s working pretty smoothly so far.
I feel kinda gross about this, but at the same time I feel like it was obviously a good idea and I probably should have done it a while ago. I’ve certainly been threatening to for some time. I’m sure I’ll have at least one screaming fit at Windows in the near future, but for now I’m feeling cautiously optimistic.
