When I first encountered the Internet my peers and I thought it was great fun to share our dev setups. We were always optimizing and always looking for new ways to optimize. Not to mention showing off. I lost interest in this practice because I settled into a system that was sufficient for my needs. Also, I didn’t have time! But I’ve recently made a ton of changes to my workflow that some might be interested in, and I happen to have some time as I’m between jobs.
