It's funny you mentioned this, because days after my tweet, I decided to go with a MacBook instead of a Dell XPS 13 w/ Ubuntu for pretty much the points you mentioned 😂

Our blogs used to run on other domains, so the UTMs there are a legacy, but are still useful internally for traffic as we treat our blogs as sources of traffic

Also to note: I don't code much anymore so these aren't huge things, but in the random times when I do need/want to code, I just want something that is simple and works.

Windows on an MBP? is that via boot camp? I haven't used windows in ages 😀 The MBP may be where I have to go, but I've been avoiding it with the keyboard/touchbar

Maybe the server was trying to push a software update and it was resisting change 🤔

Next up: Giving Ubuntu a trial run 😎 If that fails: Back to a Mac 🤷‍♂️

I've also tried AWS's Cloud9 to see if that could fulfill my needs, but with the dev environment, we lean on editing the hosts file and I couldn't find any good workaround on ChromeOS with our setup.

Things I will miss from the Pixelbook / ChromeOS: - The great keyboard - Stylus support w/ Pixelbook Pen - 3:2 aspect ratio screen - Touch screen - Lightning fast restarts - Native feeling PWAs - The overall form factor / design of the hardware and the OS

Some other compromises that I was OK with: - The Pixelbook's webcam - Occasional restarts needed - Lack of good Emoji keyboard 🙃

I've decided to end my "ChromeOS as a primary device experiment" after 8 months. There is so much to like, but just some things that I'm tired of working around: - UI Lag in Linux Apps (mostly VS Code) - No host file editing (outside of Linux VM) - Copy + paste inconsistency

I came across one yesterday that I bought back in college... I need to find a place to hook it up before my girlfriend comes back from her work trip 😁

Definitely! ChromeOS has a built in Flux-like feature (Night light). I use Zoom's Chrome app, Slack on the web which is the same pretty much and Evernote's Android app (but I'm sure their webapp would do just fine)

I mostly used web apps or command line developer tools beforehand on my MBP anyway so th adjustment wasn't bad. It's pretty much a web browser as an operating system which is nice and simple. I also use some Android apps for VPN and Netflix which is great.

I've been using my Pixelbook for 7 months and it's been great. I also like the 2in1 tablet setup which is nice for traveling/watching movies. Do you have any native Mac Apps that you use all the time?
