Draft::Setting up Linux for Web Development

I have been using Windows for the last 15 years. I have always used Linux on the side for fun and tinkering but never tried it full time until a couple of years ago. I have been trying various distros for a while now, switching between Ubuntu Unity, Linux Cinamon, Manjaro, until I tried Kubuntu with KDE plasma. The sheer amount of cuztomizations right out of the box and support for HiDPI screen for Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro meant I could stick to this for a while.

This would be a guide for myself to speed up setting my laptop. The following is for Debian-based distros

Actually, nevermind, switched to Manjaro for the moment.
