    if I had an M1 mac, then I would sell it and buy something like the linux-specific variant of the XPS-13

      Hardly, when it's the fastest ARM hardware around. Even Linux Torvalds himself wants one, if only it ran Linux. As their GPU dev already discovered, it compiles code _damn_ fast.
      why would you use your laptop for compiling code? make it a thin client and do the heavy lifting on a chunky server somewhere. most Mac users I know at work use them for running Office 365, a browser and a shell/ssh to servers in the cloud, with maybe a GUI/IDE locally and git.

        Probably the same reason why many people distrust the Cloud.

        I'm fortunate that I get a fair degree of autonomy, so I know this wouldn't work for many, but I prefer keeping "skunkworks" projects local and only putting them on hardware accessed by others when I feel it's ready for public (well, within where I work) consumption with my name attached. It's one reason why I regret listening to the suggestions of a colleague when I last replaced my laptop. Thin and light is nice when travelling, but it was so painfully anaemic to work on beyond Office/e-mail.
