Today in my attempt to migrate to / - setting up my dev environment. For the most part, this was great - almost exactly the same as getting setup on Mac for me.

I think the main difference was having to add keys for apt sources - this seems like an unnecessary hassle.

Consider the following procedures for installing postgresql 9.6 on vs


brew install postgresql@9.6



wget --quiet -O - | sudo apt-key add -

apt-get update

apt-get install postgresql-9.6

Four commands I'd have to search the web for *every time* I setup a new box vs one I can easily remember.

Homebrew is 1000x better here IMO.


Really besides that though, everything just worked. My oh-my-zsh theme, git, VSCodium, everything just came over. Nice!
