And if I were going to switch to Linux, which is looking pretty likely (thanks, friends!) what distributions and desktops should I consider?

Is GNOME 3 as weird as it sounds?

Twenty-odd years ago I was a debian user, but I got fed up with some font management issues and decamped to the new improved "BSD in a clown suit" MacOS. It's a whole new landscape now.


@cameron I'm an i3 weirdo now, but I used Cinnamon (the default desktop for Linux Mint) for a while and it was pretty fantastic; a very traditional desktop that just worked well. (Mint is another Debian-derived distro, but you can run Cinnamon on Ubuntu if you want. Switching between desktops is pretty easy if you want to compare and contrast; you just select which environment you want when you log in.)
