re: What about trying some of the Linux/BSD distros? The development on Win machines is pain, at least for me.
 

I have had some experience using Ubuntu on my personal laptop but that was over 10 years ago. All of my recent Linux experience has been just with command line on EC2 instances. For command line tool support, I agree it is great. But I haven't looked much into the GUIs, IDEs, and other development tools support software. I also end up handling some design files, so I do need to be able to run Photoshop, Illustrator, Zeplin, and few other softwares - there may be alternatives to these on Linux but I doubt they'll meet the bar...

There might be, but make sure you can export to formats that do not break the chain of work. If a designer sends you something and you have to send it back I mean.
