Also it seems that my Macbook Air from 2011 died. I am not sure how to proceed now. I would love some Linux notebook but that will cost me way more than I want to afford right now.

Following up on this: I first thought to buy some used Thinkpad X1 Carbon from 2015. For around 800EUR I can get a *new* Thinkpad L380 or L390 though. So I'll probably go for that.

@markus I've got an 11" MacBook Air from about the same time that I sort of kinda wish would go belly up so I'd have an excuse to replace it. Also looking for a Linux replacement, but, boy, I really appreciate working in MacOS.

@stephen I actually had Linux running on that Air for the last months. I would not miss macOS I think.

@markus I tried really hard to get Qubes to run on my Mac, but I just couldn't iron it out. Not technically Linux, but … Which distribution did you go with?

@stephen Tried debian first, I settled on Arch in the end since it’s the distribution I have been using most of the time before I bought my first Mac.

@markus I've got a handful of Mac only apps that have really been sticking points for me. Even ones that I know that there are Linux analogs available. Good for you, I hope to join you soon as a proper desktop Linux user.
