Trapped at home, I’ve been slowly making my way through chores I’ve been putting off. One of the things I put off is performing a clean install of my operating system on my aging MacBook Pro. At nearly 10 years old, it is starting to show its age. In an effort to breath new life into the machine, I decided to switch to a Linux operating system. I’ve been thinking about switching operating systems for a little while so, I spent a time using Ubuntu, Mint and Fedora in VMs before committing to the change.
