it'd be funny if we're all using Windows again in a few years — https://stratechery.com/2023/windows-and-the-ai-platform-shift/ I switched to Linux back in mid 2000s and then Macs in 2010s and never felt any Windows pull — but could be changing. LLMs work best in integrated workflows which Microsoft excels at.
i've switched to using my gaming pc for all my personal code, Windows Subsystem for Linux works great in my experience also nice to make more use of the GPU for non-gaming purposes
The first time in a decade I feel a windows pull.
Always remember - Microsoft is very good at “overselling” its features. It is why Azure still is behind the curve and doesn’t really scale. Or it has to pay to get usage — OpenAI investment dollars are going back to Azure. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the hype. Sadly Ben Thompson has.
