So I've decided to jump to the Unix (Linux) camp again for a while.
My main reason is that I don't buy the proprietary platform story anymore - I don't see enough value add. I'm not happy with the constraints, and the monolithic nature of the solution space.
But more than anything, I don't like being on one side of the fence - I don't want to be limited by a particular view point, or a fan boy for linux or windows.
So I'm moving from:
- Windows 7 to Fedora 14
- C# to C++, especially C++0x
- or Node.js
- or anything that looks interesting
- and maybe something like ruby
- Silverlight to HTML 5
Its been a while since I did anything on Unix, so I expect it will be painful, but as I type this in firefox running under fedora I feel I'm investing in my knowledge portfolio...
