Developing for Linux and Docker from a Mac makes me want to gouge out my eyes and cut off my hands.

@Pendragon LOL. Thanks. 🙂
Maybe I'll try doing a Linux VM again.
I've tried before, but host keybindings always make it a pain.

If you don't mind my asking, why, specifically? I'm Debian on ASUS, and love it, but have been considering moving to Mac, as it seems SO popular in the dev crowd...

@jolok MacOS doesn't support docker, so you have to use a VM. That's basically it. You have to allocate resources to the VM, and those resources get tighter and tighter over time.
I also noticed a severe performance degradation after upgrading to 11.3 "Big Sur". Native Docker on a Linux system is in a different performance category than on a Mac.

As for the rest, well, OSX isn't Linux and there are always weird workarounds to maintain a POSIX workflow in OSX. Obviously specific to your domain.
