The Linux Migration Series

In early 2017 I kicked off an effort to start using Linux as my primary desktop OS, and I blogged about the journey. That particular effort ended in late October 2017. I restarted the migration in April 2018 (when I left VMware to join Heptio), and since that time I’ve been using Linux (Fedora, specifically) full-time. However, I thought it might be helpful to collect the articles I wrote about the experience together for easy reference. Without further ado, here they are.

Preparing for the Migration (the “prequel”)

These are only the articles directly related to the migration efforts, but many more articles were spawned as a result of the project. Browse through all the Fedora-tagged articles to see some related articles.

If you have any questions about migrating to Linux or about any of these articles (or related articles), you’re welcome to contact me on Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you!
