A quick guide about installing Debian Linux stable on on a Lenovo X1 Carbon ultraportable laptop.
From the gist:
I’ve had my mind on switching my development machine from a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina to a Lenovo X1 Carbon running Linux for a while. The main reason is getting more familiar with Linux itself and also to have a more stable and minimal dev environment. So I finally got the machine and decided to install Debian 8.5 “jessie”. Why Debian? Well, I tried installing Arch Linux once and couldn’t get past getting wifi to work, and Ubuntu seemed like it added too much stuff. The choice was either Debian or Linux Mint. I went with Debian because it seems like it’s the most stable.
