Is there a best practice for switching to a Homebrew setup? Say someone has had homebrew installed for a while but often forgets to install via Homebrew, not to mention the apps installed before choosing to use Homebrew. Say there are 50 apps installed through other methods (app store or internet dl); is the best option to individually uninstall and brew install, and deal with whatever app data is missing? What is the correct process?
