I just got settled into a harmonious digital lifestyle of all things Apple when suddenly I decided once again that the world of technology is too vast to stick to just one kind!
It’s me. I can’t help it. I just have to try different things! But the thing is… I love it! I love using all Apple technology, as everything really does just work, but the truth is I like switching it up every once in a while too!
Here is my current setup:
- Primary laptop: 15″ Retina Display MacBook Pro running OS X El Capitan.
- Secondary laptop: 14″ Dell E6430 running Fedora 23.
- Workstation: Supermicro running Windows 7 Professional.
- Phone: iPhone 6 running iOS 9.1
Why all of these machines? Well, here is where you’ll think I am out of my Vulcan mind, but each one serves a purpose.
The MacBook Pro is what I use mostly for personal computing and work stuff when I am not in the office. It is setup to use my personal iCloud account and I use Photos to ship all of the pics from my SLR and videos from my GoPro to my iPhoto Library in iCloud.
The Fedora laptop is for all of my experimental stuff like learning Swift, Python, and the internals of Fedora/Red Hat Linux. Messing around with this machine comes at no risk because if I royally screw it up I’ll just reinstall Fedora.
The Windows 7 Pro desktop is my primary work computer when I am in the office. It’s the ultimate GTD machine, as I have the latest version of Office installed and I love using Outlook to organize my tasks and emails. Nothing beats it as far as I am aware.
Lastly, the iPhone is of course the best mobile phone you could possibly ever buy! I have previously tried other platforms and none of them offer an experience that comes anywhere near iOS.
So there you have it! Plagtech is back and I’ll be writing more posts about the applications that I use across each of the aforementioned platforms.
