FreeBSD

I am less frustrated, and more focused working on this setup. A big chunk of that is even outside the constant popups in OS X, there's simply less to be distracted by.

I've gone so far as to have to literally switch a cable to move between machines (as opposed to a KVM), to help me train my brain into a different context.

Overall I'm quite happy with the choices I made here.

A nice write-up from someone switching from OS X to FreeBSD, and everything that entails.

Me too. Switched to Linux in the past year because
a) OS X was getting too slow
b) it was constantly using up bandwidth in the background, and
c) I was spending "too much time telling OS X to shut up and leave me alone" (as the article author says)
