Another great question! I guess my aim is to see if I could live in eOS should there come a time when I feel the need to ditch macOS.
I’m not going to get into the applications too much in the post and will save that for later when I have a nice and stable system that’s doing most of what I want. Needless to say, I know I’m not going to get some software that runs permanently on my Mac, but I know of alternatives for some (e.g. MS Office) and will be interested to see if new ones exist for others (e.g OmniFocus – I’d really really miss that!)
One of the reasons I love macOS so much is the interaction with the enormous trackpad. If you’ve never used an Apple trackpad you don’t know what you’re missing. If you have, you know what I mean. Using 2, 3 and 4 finger gestures is something I’d really miss and I’m going to try and tackle this early on. It’s one of the things that might have broken the 1st (undocumented) attempt, so I don’t want to get too far in only to find I break ‘take 2’
I also need to be able to access other services on my network, including my FreeNAS machine and shared folders, ownCloud server, Plex Media Server, to name but a few. I also need to be able to connect back into my network remotely using something like openVPN.
So this is where I’ll be starting. Trying to get the trackpad to feel a little macOS like and connected to everything in my network.
I’d also applied a theme to the rEFInd boot menu on my 1st attempt (which took way too much time) and it looked much nicer, although didn’t offer anything the default one does. I’ll get around to this at some stage, but not right now.
Feel free to join me on the journey, or simply to laugh at my mistakes along the way…
