|Recently I upgraded my 2yr old laptop (now it has 16GB RAM, 275GB SSD, baklit keyboard) and now consider which linux distro use as main OS.|
What are your experience with various linux distros as main OS? Which one is the best? How looks like your dev environment?
For me are important these points :
- Ability to run virtualized systems (Windows, other linux distros)
- Good battery management
All necessary dev tasks and experiments will be performed in virtualized systems.
