"It seems like it wasn't that long ago when Windows was an
exclusive part of my computing life. Ever so slowly, I began to
move away from Windows XP into some of the popular Linux
distributions of the time.
"I found myself falling in love with a specific Linux
distribution made popular by its ability to "just work" without a
ton of configuration. At the time, this held a great appeal to me.
After all, I had other things to do throughout my day besides
having to configure everything on my desktop PC by hand.
"Flash forward to today, my schedule is basically the same.
Therefore, I tend to lean toward desktop-friendly distributions
that help me get my work done with as little hassle as possible.
And much to my satisfaction, today's modern Linux experience is
beneficial to me in this space."
