End-to-End Telescope with Docker, WSL2 and Windows 10

So on April 3rd, I managed to completely blow up my Pop!OS installation beyond repair. I blame Nvidia drivers and permissions, but it's also a reminder to `never fix what's not broken`. For the past month, I had really enjoyed being on Linux and tweaking about with various aspects of my desktop, yet even in that happiness my friends constantly reminded me of the applications that I used which don't support Linux. This included games, audio software, guitar effects for example. I decided hey, if my install is already borked and backed-up, let's install Windows 10 for the weekend and see how frustrated I can get. Solid plan, don't you think?

Experiment: Moving to Pop!OS For A Month

As of this past weekend, which marked the start of March and what appears to be kinder climates, I opted to conclude the one year experiment and evaluate the state of the Linux desktop in comparison for a month. Though Windows itself wasn't giving much grief, there were still workflows and quirks that I truly never got over; likewise developing with WSL 2.0 proved to be quite the abstract objective than I thought which led to quite a bit of productivity-loss. I still quite enjoy the concept of Windows Subsystem for Linux, and feel that if I had started using it from day one instead of dropping it into a pre-existing `GIT-BASH` setup that things would be quite smoother. Curiously, I have plans to test exactly that If I end up returning to Windows 10 in the near future. Regardless, I have to work with CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora systems daily at work -which, encourages me to run a similar system for both my home an development environments. Such familiarity truly can help produce fantastic results when enveloped in a unified mindset among different.
