For a long time I believed Linux should be thought of as "boy this is neat, but it's something you adopt because you like open source", but now I really believe Linux is just better than Windows and Mac, at least for my purposes.
I mostly use the computer for taking notes in markdown. I also picked up a tablet for drawing. It turns out Linux has really good apps for both of these things and I'm much more productive than I've ever been.
Also, when it comes to coding, I've had more consistent success getting things set up in Linux. I don't think I've ever gotten LaTeX working on Windows, and it's been easier, in general, to get a new development environment setup from the terminal in Linux.
There is a little tiny learning curve, but literally, almost any problem I've run into I've been able to troubleshoot online and find the right console commands.
I'd love to hear from other people, especially artists, about their thoughts on Linux, since I've found the switch to be really rewarding.
