And if I were going to switch to Linux, which is looking pretty likely (thanks, friends!) what distributions and desktops should I consider?

Is GNOME 3 as weird as it sounds?

Twenty-odd years ago I was a debian user, but I got fed up with some font management issues and decamped to the new improved "BSD in a clown suit" MacOS. It's a whole new landscape now.

@cameron I'm mostly joking. I ran Arch the last time I had a dedicated linux machine, maybe 15 years ago, because I wanted an OS with everything I wanted and nothing I didn't, but it's probably true that if you run Arch, your hobby is running linux. You'll learn a lot, but you'll have to learn a lot.
