Development Setup

March 28, 2022

This last year was the biggest development setup change in my life.  You might know me for liking Microsoft lot but have learnt that it does not matter what system or device you use as a fool with a tool is still a fool when I tried using macOS.  This year I have moved fully to the Apple eco system.  What I can say about macOS is it’s nice to be in a Unix environment that I am used to but have support for programs.
