We only want to advertise YNAB for platforms that we can enthusiastically proclaim, â€œThis will work great for you! We promise! If it doesnâ€™t, weâ€™ll work until it does.â€ The fact is, we canâ€™t do that for Linux anymore.
YNAB & Linux, 2011

I decided to replace my mid-2011 Macbook Air 3,2 with a non-Apple machine, but every laptop I looked at was unsuitable. Most were overpriced, with a big and clunky design. The Lenovo X1 Carbon was promising, but the 2nd generation had a keyboard that was just too weird (and the function keys changing modes means you can’t touch-type them anymore). Standard qwerty is bad, but it’s the devil I know.
