Which one do you use while doing developer work ? To be clear, which one do you want to use ?
Abhi Linux hands down.
I too felt so. Today, I was doing some work where npm was involved. The way we can use that through Terminal, I would not dream of it in Windows. People forgot CMD altogether.
Abhi who on earth wants to use an operating system where you can't ping a port natively ? Yes Windows, I'm looking at you 🤬
Looks like Satya Nadella is smart. WSL is getting good reviews from Windows fans.
I am afraid they might consume Ubuntu in a couple of years.

Well, yes, but all Micro$oft are doing here is extending their own sub system with Linux. They have to embrace this otherwise they will sink.
I have done a lot of things with Linux that I will never ask from Windows. It could be just that Windows does not need those things.
Installing Android Studio on Linux was fun and complex, before they came with a snap for it. It is one click install now.
There are lot of such stuff which you do only on Linux, mainly on CLI. I don't think anyone using Windows will even want to use CLI.
A lot of people I follow on social media prefer to show their Mac while talking about tech stuff. I am not sure that is because Mac book is superior than what Linux offer as an OS.

True. Linux Mint, Ubuntu etc are very close to being a 100 % Windows alternative. In some areas, they are more creative and strong.
Abhi I prefer Linux over Windows anyday
I hear a lot of praise for Arch Linux and Manjaro which is based on it. Probably because Arch is famous for its penetration testing tools. But Manjaro is a complete novice desktop OS from what I heard with Arch Linux as its base.
Notice nobody's mentioned slack yet 😁. Mind you, that's not for the faint hearted. There's also fedora, the free version of RHEL
