Building and upgrading a PC so so fun. If you’re against using a Microsoft OS, just put a Linux variant on it or make it a Hackintosh. Sites like https://pcpartpicker.com/ help a lot if you’re worried about buying incompatible parts or want a pre-made shopping list. Plus, it gives you valuable nerd cred you can deploy against people who insult you for going all in on Apple.
I tinkered with Hackintoshes years and years ago but wouldn’t ever do it for a production machine now.
What was the brand of pen David mentioned on the podcast?
I believe he mentioned Kaweco?
