For the past two weeks, I have been completely living under native Alpine Linux and the following are my impressions so far. For the first week, I tested the working environment (i.e. basic dotfiles, etc) while under a Debian host, and everything went as smooth as it could. I hit zero snags. With that confidence under my belt, I grabbed my old ThinkPad X220T, “torrented” the actual ISO and installed on bare-metal.
