I too also got to shed my windows laptop when retired a couple years ago as well!
I currently use a Mac mini and Linux(multiple forms, virtual and real hardware) for my Desktops of choice. I have been around UNIX/Linux since 1980, so am not always sure the background of others when discussing on the mailing lists!
