@nolan Ah, I should note that I'm using Fedora on all three, as I work at Red Hat. (I don't *have to*, but dogfooding and all that.)
The Lenovo is single boot.
The Dell is dual boot with Windows 10 (but usually in Linux). With the recent news about Edge, I guess the laptop will be in Linux even more. 😞
The Mac is usually powered off, but dual boots with OS X.
Gaming works-ish on the Dell as it's Intel graphics. I use a Switch and PS4 for games. 😉

@nolan I have an old MacBook Pro (mid-2009), a Lenovo T460s for work, and a Dell XPS 13 9360. They all run Linux.
I love the XPS, am not so happy with the Lenovo (it now has issues with USB, but I also wasn't a fan before that), and the MacBook Pro has been simply unusable for quite some time. (Linux runs OK on it — much better than OS X.)
The Dell XPS 13 is so much better than my MBP, and this includes the touchpad. It's better in every way than the Lenovo too.
@claudiom Wow, there was a Dell Unix and they didn't call it DUX? What a wasted opportunity. 😁

I really wish there was a toot privacy setting where I could chose to only toot to people I follow, not people who follow me. Imho, that's not really intuitive anyway. #meta
So - do I get another smaller locked account that I will probably not use often enough, will I just bite my tounge when it's something I don't feel like posting publicly or semi-publicly?
Last boost: Boys don't have color or interesting outfits compared to girls.
However, outfits for girls and women often lack something cloths for boys and men have: pockets. And reasonable ones, too.
Why can't there be clothes that go against trends trends and make visually interesting, pocket-having clothing for everyone? 🤔
The ongoing legacy of the Great Masculine Renunciation of the 18th Century, or: why do we dress boys in clothes that are grey, joyless and dull?
On the Edge team, we had a *whole team* dedicated to finding compat bugs, reducing them, and reaching out to site owners with fixes. Sometimes we would reach out to a site owner and they'd say, "Sorry, you don't have enough market share for us to bother fixing this bug."
This is where we get -webkit prefixed CSS in the standard, as well as de-facto standards and "works best in Chrome." This is why both Opera and Edge switched to Chromium.
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
@theoutrider are you wearing joxers (jean boxers)? 🤔
Mozilla's take on the Edge news.
"By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google... We compete with Google not because it’s a good business opportunity. We compete with Google because the health of the internet and online life depend on competition and choice."
Cool fact about Linux: I can still test three different browser engines: Blink (via Chrome), Gecko (via Firefox), and WebKit (via Epiphany Browser). There are subtle differences between Epiphany and Safari (no Web Payments, no Service Worker, no -webkit-backdrop-filter, etc.) but it's pretty close.
That's pretty good desktop coverage, and I can debug Chrome and Firefox on Android using ADB, as well as Safari on iOS using https://github.com/RemoteDebug/remotedebug-ios-webkit-adapter/. Linux is not bad for web development.
