Sharing from Linux to macOS

    Note: The OS versions I used here are macOS Sonoma 14 Beta 3 and Fedora Workstation 38. On the first try, I was supposed to enable file sharing from macOS and access it on my Fedora machine.

    Familiarizing Linux Again

    After more than 5 years on macOS, I’m excited that I get the chance to use Linux again. My brother gave me his old Windows laptop. Since I figured it has 1TB of disk space in it, I decided to create a Linux partition. So I asked Silicon Valley’s best for help on which distro to install. There were no clear winners though.
