From Chris Wiegman as he talks about leaving “big tech” ecosystems.
My last personal Mac was a 2016 15″ MBP with touchbar and all the other bells and whistles and it was a piece of junk for the bargain price of around $3,000. Lock-in, in my opinion, has made us complacent where we will still buy these machines simply because we think they’re the only things we can work with.
He goes on to document his reasons why he wanted to break away from the big tech companies, some of which I agree with and some I don’t. While I don’t love the lock-in from Apple, I do love the iPad Pro and use it for almost everything I do.
I’d love it if he gave us a more detailed look at what he’s using instead of Google or Apple stuff. I know he’s on a Linux laptop from System76, but what other services were replaced?
