Surviving Mac, Windows, Linux on daily basis

Filed under
OS
Software

I am a Linux, Mac & Windows user and I use them on daily basis. I use Linux for all my personal works, Windows at my Office and Mac on the move [since I bought it at high premium].

It’s not a secret that all three platforms are drastically [except the point and click] different from each other. With the platform, we change the way we work, our thinking changes. We need to adapt to different way of doing things especially if you are a bit higher than a noob. But since we humans are not that friendly with constant changes, there has to be some similarity maintained to stay sane between the constant switches.

Maintaining similarity is not possible on certain aspects such as hardware specific, navigation, desktop UI, desktop administration. After working on both Windows & Linux for year and lately for about 6 months on Mac, the below are the applications I found useful to keep my switch between the platforms seamless.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
