I switched from Windows to Linux. Here are the lessons I learned along the way.

I wasn’t able to look up some of the specs on the laptop. You said it had 16 GB of RAM. (Which sounds like a lot on the surface, about adequate possibly ), but then the MAC I use has the same amount of RAM.

I was curious about what processor it came with, its speed, l1 and L2 cache sizes, (the latency of the RAM itself), and whether it had dedicated or onboard/shared memory for the graphics.

its been my experience that the shared memory types often have a performance hit. However, I’ve never seen a huge issue with any Windows machine at start, though I know many devs that complain if their rig isn’t tip top of the line.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
