So, I Bought a Surface Book

So, I decided to buy myself a Surface Book today. It's a surprisingly high quality device that easily competes with my MacBook Pro in terms of build and design.

I decided to buy it for a number of reasons:

  • I've been a little bit depressed lately, and new toys always help me get out of a funk.
  • There are a plethora of games available for Windows.
  • I enjoy the challenge of setting up a proper development environment on this platform.

So far, it's been a rather enjoyable experience. The new Unix Subsystem for Windows 10 is surprisingly enjoyable, and was able to produce a build of Python 2.7.13 without any problems. 

So far, I'd say there's only a 25% chance that I'll return the device. Fingers crossed!
