I work 8 hours a day. Half of my waking hours. Using the operating system and programming tools of my choice is essential to my happiness at work.

I’m fortunate to work a place that let’s me do that. In fact, 18 out of my 20 years in the field, I’ve been able to use the tools I enjoy.

As Donald Knut wrote:

The enjoyment of one’s tools is an essential ingredient of successful work.

I run Arch, by the way.
